But the Web continues to evolve, with crucial help from people like Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey. The Information Web--the one that shut down newspapers, wiped out travel agencies and electronics resellers, and overthrew Arab dictators--is turning into the Social Web. The former was about knowledge, the latter is about...well, actually, you! It's all about you, and everything about you that the Web and Big Data analytics can gather and process. The end result is a scarily true-to-life online portrait that businesses can use to target messages to you, and--equally important--that you can trade on to get what you want. It's going to be powerful stuff, and the foundation is even now being laid.
