This is a great book that describes the impact of the new Web 2.0 internet, with all the new possibilities of mass collaboration.

‘From these principles Tapscott discusses the following actors:

  • Ideagoras the creation of open forums where ideas are freely shared and developed (…)
  • Prosumers who are a rising group of customers who will both produce and consume new products and services.
