Jeremy,

That is a spectacularly interesting question you just asked.

Great post! It seems that the masses are reclaiming the internet as their own. As you point out, the early internet was about conversations and niche publishers until big business and media jumped in. Do you think this could be cyclical? Will big business and media be able to push their way into "Web 2.o" to the extent they did "Web 1.0?" Will people be reading blogs, Twitter posts, and Facebook profiles for their favorite brands more than those of their favorite friends and colleagues?
