Abstract

The way that we communicate has changed auspiciously in the last decade. Even the philosophy behind communication on the internet has changed so much that it is now referred to as the Web 2.0. With modern hand held devices, the web is moving into your handbag and your pocket.   It’s about communication all day, everyday. Its about having access to it wherever you go.   Modern taxonomists have picked up on these changes too, beginning with databases that are interlinked across the internet to form Taxonomy 2.0. Its all the time, everywhere and most importantly for everyone. And that’s what I am here to tell you about.
