Explaining Web 2.0 to an academic audience

Recently I attended the Canadian Associaton of Geographers conference. We were tabling and exploring linkages between academia and government (Natural Resources Canada) using web 2.0 implementations. While there is good will to collaborate, after all we share common academic credentials, widespread knowledge about web 2.0 needs to be addressed.

Shift Happens” is a must see video on changing demographics, digital generation and expecations for teaching, government and society.
