Yeah, that means you. Or me. Or us. We. Well actually not "Wii" but "we".
The point is, that due to Web 2.0, we are in control of the internet. We control the vertical. We control the horizontal.
One might still ask, what is Web 2.0? It is something better described by marketing than by reality. Somebody (O'Reilly Media actually) decided that as of 2004, the internet had entered the second revolution where Google and other online mainstays replaced the original tools of the first generation internet. The kids in the virtual trenches are probably aware that the internet is actually an ever-evolving beast rather than something that is neatly packaged every few years into a new edition (like traditional software). Still, services like YouTube and MySpace have come to define Web 2.0
So apparently with Web 2.0, we control the internet. It is some great big social experiment that will either save us or doom us. Looking at some videos on YouTube, I agree that either option is possible.
What a great honor...I'd like to thank my family, and uhhh...the internet for creating the opportunity...blah blah blah Also view TIME Magazine's original article.
