Web 1.0 was the traditional internet era of ebay, yahoo, AOL and other companies founded between 1994 and 2001. Web 2.0 are the social companies that were birthed between 2002 and 2009, such as facebook, linkedIn and Groupon. The dawn of the new era is upon us and that is mobile web.

As information managers we need to be ready for the challenges of content in a mobile world. The paradigm of paperless office was yesterday.
