Web 2.0 – about time.

Web 2.0 is the first realization of a great promise of the Web as a great democratizer. While the business communitiy has regarded the Web’s democratization as pertaining to allowing small and micro business to command the same presence on the Web a fortune 500, the true democratization is that of the people.

The people are gaining their voice. User Generated Content. They are learning to harness their collective power, as customers, as believers, as citizens and leaders. “Social Networking” The people are virtually assembling and it’s beautiful.

From the First Ammendment of the U.S. Constitution
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

We’re seeing the beginnings though. Society has much to master. We’re figuring it out. Rather, some are figuring it out. They are Explorers of a frontier in the approach of the medium for collective influence and ultimately cause action. The biggest Town Hall meeting on the planet.

Next post is definitely related.

Cheers.
