Keeping a Soldier Connected Web 2.0 Style

Keeping a Soldier Connected Web 2.0 Style: "Roland is a Second Lieutenant in the Army's Transportation Corp. We graduated together from Davidson College in 2005. But when I went to New York, he left for boot camp to fulfill his ROTC obligation.

But here he was, a year later, chatting at the end of his workday in an office on a base near the Ziggurat of Ur in Iraq. These are different times, aren't they?

Something has happened to our world. It started with “You’ve Got Mail!” and the tech boom of the 90s. That bubble burst, but now we are saturated in its soapy connectivity.

Call it post-bubble, call it Web 2.0, or call it an evolution in human communication. In our time, information travels at broadband rates.

And it's connecting a solider to his home."
