What Is Web 2.0 - O'Reilly Media - Flock by Tim O'Reilly 09/30/2005 Oct. 2009: Tim O'Reilly and John Battelle answer the question of "What's next for Web 2.0?" in Web Squared: Web 2.0 Five Years On. The bursting of the dot-com bubble in the fall of 2001 marked a turning point for the web. Many people concluded that the web was overhyped, when in fact bubbles and consequent shakeouts appear to be a common feature of all technological revolutions. Shakeouts typically mark the point at which an ascendant technology is ready to take its place at center stage.

Converting audio cassette tapes to CD, MP3 and other digital formats See more Audacity questions and answers at the Audacity Q&A. My parents recently redecorated a room in their house. While cleaning up, they found a cassette tape wedged in a back corner, covered in thick layers of time and memory. With the luck of having such an old tape still work, and containing rare audio of the mid-eighties, we needed to get this tape copied fast. What you need You'll need a cassette tape player with a headphone jack, a computer with a soundcard, the free "Audacity" software, and a 3.5mm (1/8-inch) male-male stereo audio cable. How to convert 1) Plug one end of the audio cable into your cassette player's headphone or "Line out" jack, and the other end into your computer soundcard's "Microphone" or "Line in" jack. 2) Start Audacity, and change the input type to "Line in" or "Microphone", depending on what soundcard jack you're using. 3) Press the record button (red circle) on Audacity, then press play on your cassette tape. Don't stop with cassette tapes. Arrow asks:
