World in hands with web 2.0
New technologies have a vast potential for empowerment which needs to be fully exploited. These technologies can be powerful instruments for advancing economic and social development through the creation of new types of economic activity, employment opportunities, improvements in health-care delivery and other services, and the enhancement of networking, participation and advocacy within society.
"A collaborative medium, a place where we could all meet and read and write". World Wide Web inventor Tim Berners-Lee. He was right; web 2.0 allows us to connect, express and transform ourselves as we collaborate across oceans, continents and cultural barriers. With web 2.0, you are not a watcher anymore; you can be creator. Save your effort and time to use them effectively. By using web 2.0 you can accelerate executing work, connect with whoever you want easier, share experiences, dreams and problems. I can't avoid log in web 2.0 everyday. It's everything in my life. I can meet available friends every day, do my work even at home; connect with my relatives as they are abroad. I love reading, web 2.0 provide me with great books and information about everything I want to know from everywhere.
Web 2.0 can be seen as a tool for empowering women, a space where women can contribute to the construction of cultural knowledge, a space that can be used by women for connecting, networking and sharing information and interests with other women not tied to geography, time or affordability to reach others. Access to new methods of communication between women can facilitate social changes. Communication with other women on-line removes our sense of isolation and alienation. With the Internet, women have access to new resources, materials and information not locally available. They also can find recent and up to date data. Having access to new and current resources permits the spread of information that can be used for activism and social change. Women intimidated by public speaking may feel more comfortable speaking on-line. Ultimately, women may be attracted to the Internet because it makes claims not to pay attention to discrimination issues such as age, race and sex. And as Bill Gates said: The internet is becoming the town square for the global village of tomorrow.
