Topic: Could The Web 2.0 Party Be Over Already? The Move Toward Enterprise 2.0.
With more than two years since the term was first coined publicly, more than a billion dollars in venture capital invested, and more lookalike than unique products and services launching nowadays, some have speculated whether or not Web 2.0 could be losing steam. Find out if the party could really be over, what it would mean for those just beginning to adopt Web 2.0 principles, and what may be around the corner.

Topic: Web 2.0: Turning Customer Insight into a Strategic Advantage
The gold standard in advertising is having the ability to be able to know what customers want today and more importantly, what they are likely to want tomorrow. Through consumer-generated media, RSS feeds and podcasting, Web 2.0 has shifted marketing from push to pull. Today the internet gives marketers the ability to not only segment and target consumers but to leverage past off-line interactions with current on-line behaviors. The strategic advantage comes into play when marketers can measure campaign results and take immediate action to engage with customers based on their unique on-line visitor intent.

Topic: If Ben Franklin Saw the Internet
Benjamin Franklin suffered from an incurable curiosity which led him to create a multitude of inventions ranging from bifocals to the glass harmonica. Most famously, perhaps, he made the greatest discovery of the 19th century: electricity. But Franklin was also respected abroad for his ability to connect ideas and people. What would Ben Franklin have said about the most powerful invention of the 20th century, the Internet? From the Age of Enlightenment to the current Age of Connectivity, we've always been intrigued with the seemingly limitless potential to connect people around the world. FedEx believes that transparency, honesty and trust are key.

Mark shares how FedEx sees its online strategy as a logical extension of its corporate values, and how the company's early adoption of social networking tools like RSS, internal blogs and wikis, gadgets and other tools is helping it connect employees and customers.

Topic: Marketing 2.0: Do It Wrong, Quickly.
How does the Internet change the old marketing rules? Your customers can comment on your blogs, they can rate your products, and they can even create a hate site if they really don't like you. You need to be listening. Your customers also show you what they like and what they don't with every click of your Web site. You need to be watching. Learn the changes in Marketing 2.0—and how your business can adapt to them.
