  4. 4. Discussion <ul><li>Institutions are far behind users… </li></ul><ul><li>… but not all users are 2.0 yet </li></ul><ul><li>2.0 is much more than technology </li></ul><ul><li>2.0 is, first of all, a cultural change </li></ul><ul><li>2.0 is not about doing the same things with new tools, is doing new things </li></ul><ul><li>Crowdsourcing, innovation and creativity: let them create the web </li></ul>
