Roger and Linkers

In ref to Rogers' recent request for info re web 2 - did you pick up 
the last para in the Time's Person of the Year article?:

Web 2.0 is a massive social experiment, and like any experiment worth 
trying, it could fail. There's no road map for how an organism that's 
not a bacterium lives and works together on this planet in numbers in 
excess of 6 billion. But 2006 gave us some ideas. This is an 
opportunity to build a new kind of international understanding, not 
politician to politician, great man to great man, but citizen to 
citizen, person to person. It's a chance for people to look at a 
computer screen and really, genuinely wonder who's out there looking 
back at them. Go on. Tell us you're not just a little bit curious.
