Here’s a series of commercials from AT&T circa the early 90’s, where they depict the future of communications. It’s interesting to see what they predicted would happen versus what actually has happened. Have you ever tucked your baby in, from a telephone booth?
A cool summary of “Web 2.0,” and all sorts of other things Internet-related in under 5 minutes. The video successfully demonstrates (and validates) that web 2.0 is more than just the latest Internet-boom buzzword, or marketing hype. I think there really is functionality and change related to the term, and more important some technology advances that have allowed for it … see for yourself. Not surprisingly, the video currently has over 1.5 million views on youtube. It’s similar to Account Planning … what a great example of simplification. A professor from Kansas State University took such a complex world, the Internet and its intricacies (HTML, XML, RSS, Ajax, Java, etc.) in the year 2007, and distilled it into an easy-to-understand, visual, explanation. ; ) Simplify, simplify, simplify. Check out techcrunch for all things web 2.0 too, very fresh (It’s on my blogroll). And of course, for more on Account Planning — read this.
