My point was, that the 'democratization' of information is a process that is already alive and well, does not require Web 2.0. The argument that democracy is nothing more than mob-rule is old, tired. Enhancing the process of 'democratization' will only make that argument older, ever more tired. -- Alan Gutierrez - alan@e... - http://engrm.com/blogometer/index.html - http://engrm.com/blogometer/rss.2.0.xml
