Remember ten years ago, when we began to hear about a place called "cyberspace" and "the internet?" It had the power to connect the whole world with the click of a mouse and created 20 year old multi-millionaires. From dotboom to dotbust, our world has been changed by the internet. Join guest host Melinda Penkava for a look at the Internet, where we are now, and where we're going.
