I don't know how many of you have been around long enough to remember the joy that was gopher. How much easier it was to just pick off a text menu than use the command-line codes to connect to what you wanted. That was 1992/93 or so.
Then came Mosaic, and a new world opened up. The Mosaic people went on to create Netscape in what was that 94?
But now we are experiencing web 2.0 technologies. How long do you think until lots of "regular" people (not just college kids) catch on to web 2.0?
I've been thinking that the shift to web 2.0 is going to be bigger than the shift from gopher to web 1.0.
I just feel like we are just about to break another wave of change. I hope we as libraries are ready for it.
