I think it is interesting how micro-sites have become a necessity and a convenience for mobile browsers based on Webkit (safari). I would imagine that soon there will be a way to automate the creation of a micro-site from the data on a regular website. The trafficking of data as a service instead of the service of trafficking data is the big difference I see for web 1.0 versus 2.0. People expect to see independent data that can be collated to their whims instead of just being given a little snippet of data that some person deemed was enough. I truly appreciate micro-sites when Im on my iphone and need some information, it saves me a lot of time and reinforces my loyalty to a site as a source which I will happily pass on to my social circle.

The biggest issue I see concerning the human race’s future is our ability to adapt to our tools and change our style of educating our youth. How do we teach them to keep an emotional distance from many of the things they will read or watch? How do we teach them to question authority and think for themselves without opening a proverbial pandoras box? How do we remove the desire of those who wish to use knowledge and information to control others for their own selfish desires? How can the human race attain the level of social and technological development we see in the Star Trek fiction? A society that values the advancement of the human race, true kinship with all cultures possible.
