The widespread use of the printing press, which opened up knowledge to anyone who could read, represented the first significant attack on the power of knowledge keepers. The rise of the Web created an instant, easy, and plentiful source of information. It gave ordinary people the ability, through access to electronic data, to bypass human knowledge experts.
