What is Web 2.0 And Why Should You Care?

  1. 1. Web 2.0 Changes Everything We are in 2 period or increasingly rapid change, and the projections all trend to easier, faster, and free. Understanding this change is hardest for the people who are the most successfiil in the previous technology, who are getting worse results applying steadily increasing effort. I work in the domain ofsales, so I think diis change started in sales. But actually, it is already being used by the leaders in design, engineering, manufacturing, knowledge services, distribution, education, media, hcalthcarc, govemmcnt and others. The laggards in these industries are trying everything they can to slow or reverse the pace ofthis change. Where an industry is controlled by a few, they can successfully hold back the change longer, like newspapers, the recording industry, some governments. But in each case, eventually they are capsized by an emerging solution that overcomes any legaey advantage. The only solution is to take the (short) time required to leam how to use these new ideas and technologies to radically improve performance and start to win. To get the most from this presentation Please go to http: //throughthebrowser. blogspot. com/200 9/ 1 0/what—is-web-2Oand-why-should-youA care. html and answer three easy questions about this presentation: 1. What was the best thing you leamed? 2, How does this apply to you? 3. What will you do differently now? You will be able to see what everyone else has leamed and is doing. Thank you!
