    4. 4. What is it? <ul><li>&quot;Web 2.0&quot; or two-way dialogue is more about the culture of an organization than its' tools. In a Web 1.0 organization, decision making is hierarchical. A few senior staffers go off on THE ANNUAL RETREAT and return with marching orders. Conversely, in a Web 2.0 environment an organization OPENS the door for staff, volunteers, donors, clients and other key stakeholders to be a part of the decision-making process. </li></ul><ul><li>Source: Nonprofit Technology Blog - Inspired by Alison Fine author of Social Momentum: Igniting Change in the Connected Age. </li></ul>
