The Internet is indeed alive and growing! Last weeks (4/15-18/07) Web 2.0 Expo proved beyond a doubt that the Internet as you knew it just a few months ago is rapidly morphing and changing both itself and the way in which we are able to connect with others. My case in point:
Jeff Bezos founder and CEO of Amazon did not spend one moment discussing his incredibly successful business but instead focused almost exclusively on his new ventures http://aws.amazon.com.
Search on Blog has gone from nil to 20% of all search activity in less than 6 mos; an astounding figure.
1 in 2 bloggers are under 30. 1 in 3 are over 30.
Word of mouth advertising is fast replacing ad generated spin as the prefered way to sell a service or product.
Widgets and Gadgets are a must.
Test, test and keep on testing.
