One of the great benefits of our Web 2.0 world is the instant access we have to the ideas generated by the seminal movers and shakers of our era. This "Web 2.0" discussion from the World Economic Forum in Davos, January 2007, is a case in point.
Here, on one stage, are Bill Gates, YouTube founder Chad Hurley, Flickr founder Caterina Fake, and numerous others, discussing the meaning and significance of the revolution called Web 2.0.
Bill Gates once again proves his unique capabilities as a sweeping visionary. He sees the future going toward more natural input devices (speech, 3D), toward making markets ever more granular ,searchable, and customized, and notes the hyper-speed naturee of customer usage as an immediate feedback mechanism for morphing an internet-based business ever more closely (and quickly) to the needs of the customer. I predict this video will be a classic.
