Today’s World – by @MaggiePhilbin

This post by Maggie Philbin, on the BBC Digital Revolution Blog sums up much of what I love about today’s web.

“The power of the web now lies in its conversations. Twitter allows you to tell me about your life in Iran, the plane landing on the river outside your office or your row with the gas board… …I can talk to government minsters, to scientists I admire and to witty strangers… …I know my peripheral knowledge has improved… …If we choose we can be more aware.”

Go read: What has the Web ever done for us? And go comment…
