The Internet … only smaller

Jeremy Elwood, SBJ ReporterFor those who’ve been hiding in a cave for the last several months – and with the current economic news, I don’t blame you if you have been – the Internet is changing, and handheld devices from Blackberries to iPhones are leading the charge.

The online version of Fortune magazine spells out the two faces of the Internet in an article posted today.

The mobile online environment, according to the story, has improved by leaps and bounds since its earliest incarnations just a few years ago, thanks in large part to increased bandwidth and the rapid growth of 3G network capabilities.

For those of you, like me, who don’t really understand what that means, think of it this way: Most Web pages viewed on an iPhone now look more like useful tools than electronic afterthoughts.

And we at Springfield Business Journal haven’t ignored the trend. We’re in the process of developing content for SBJ-centric pages at social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Other exciting developments are coming down the road, too.

I won’t spill the beans any more than that – I’ll leave that to SBJ Online Editor Dee Dee Jacobs – but don’t say I didn’t warn you.
