The Internet has revolutionized information access. I remember the days of the old Mozilla browser and when most people used Netscape. Then came the days of dial-up modems and 14.4 speeds. The Internet is changing rapidly and the next generation of the Web is Web 2.0.
According to Tim O'Reilly, "Web 2.0 is the business revolution in the computer industry caused by the move to the Internet as platform, and an attempt to understand the rules for success on that new platform."
If you get a chance, make sure to explore various RSS feeds, wikis, blogs, and social networking sites. These sites represent the next generation of the WWW. Get familiar with them so that you can leverage the potential that Web 2.0 has to offer.
