The next generation Internet: a CTO perspective
WEB 2.0 and Internet Channel Innovation (3)
David Boloker
The next generation of the Internet will uncover as many revolutionary business opportunities as the first. Within five years Web 2.0 will generate a new age of collective intelligence and extreme insight, in which companies can correlate the massive amounts of information on the Internet with that of their own enterprises, including text, audio, video and dynamic “gadgets,” to create real-time business scenarios and timelines never before possible. \n<br><br>\nThis session will give folks a glimpse into the vast possibilities of Web 2.0 technologies, with an eye fixed on real demonstrations and the businesses behind them.\n<br><br>\nThis session was initially advertised as a Mashup & QEDWiki session, and will indeed include these topic areas, but will now paint a much wider picture than originally planned for the benefit of the WUG UK audience.
