To understand how it kicked-off, please visit :
and have a look to the surveys, they were the first large-scales surveys on the Net.
"Unlike other forms of media, which are basically one-way communications channels into the home, the Web is two-way," says Colleen Kehoe, a Georgia Tech researcher. "The average Web user in the future will be a producer of information as well as a consumer."
Congrats Colleen for that quote !
