Web 2 0 the inspiration
Web 2.0 the inspiration

  • The web is shifting from an international library of interlinked pages to an information ecosystem, where data circulate like nutrients in a rain forest.” Information in this ecosystem is “analyzed, repackaged, digested, and passed on. It flows.”

    www.discover.com/issues/oct-05/departments/emerging-technology/

  • The web is “shifting from being a medium in which information is transmitted and consumed, into being a platform, in which content was created, shared, remixed, repurposed, and passed along. http://elearnmag.org/subpage.cfm?section=articles&article=29-1
