Recently Time Magazine gave the “Person of the Year” award to YOU! Which means US! All of us Internet users who each in our large or small way are building the Internet of the 21st century brick by brick, or rather blogpost by blogpost.
I really love the last paragraph,
Web 2.0 is a massive social experiment, and like any experiment worth trying, it could fail. There’s no road map for how an organism that’s not a bacterium lives and works together on this planet in numbers in excess of 6 billion. But 2006 gave us some ideas. This is an opportunity to build a new kind of international understanding, not politician to politician, great man to great man, but citizen to citizen, person to person….”
This will be the first of many blogposts about Web 2.0. As a librarian, a citizen of the Internet, and a digital immigrant, I am proud and excited to be part of this social experiment and I hope that Cook Memorial Library and its community of readers will be part of this social experiment as well.
