Abstract A brief overview of the technology underlying the Baha'i Library Online, and why this technology represents the next step in the Internet's evolution [since this was written, the term "Web 2.0" has been coined for the "next step" I described].
Notes Presented to the Baha'i Language Educators Special Interest Group session of the Association for Baha'i Studies Conference, August 29 2003, San Francisco. See also Notes about and history of the Bahá'í Library Online.

This is a brief summary written by a layperson, not a polished article. I prepared it so that users of the Baha'i Library Online (myself included!) would better understand the way this new system works and its potential.
