, and advance the Dr Ralph Smedley's Toastmaster movement into the 21st Century.
Just as Electricity, the Car, the Telephone, and the computer were the Hi-Tech products of yesteryear.
The net generation is busy working on changing the world into a new paradigm of the
Internet, WiKis, and Instant Communications. Most of use have heard
of Wikipedia the world largest Encyclopedia.

role in our Global Village.
In the next ten years there are going to be tremendous
strides in communication and computing, the flow of new information
will make your head spin even if you belong to the net generation.
The world is going through the worst recession since the great deppresion of the '30s at the moment, but this will only
