Technology journalist John Heileman presents the story of the Internet revolution and its cultural, commercial, and social impact to our lives.   

PEOPLE POWER explains the rise of Web 2.0 and social networking through interviews with the founders of Napster, YouTube, MySpace, and Facebook. The program considers how traditional media companies have alternately rejected and embraced the Web, as evidenced by the recording industry's suit against Napster and NewsCorps's purchase of MySpace.
