I'm not too sure about the question. There is never a best time to start learning about technology because it's always changing.

Which direction do you want your career to head in? At least with that in mind you can start to focus on areas of technology that will be helpful to your area.

It's such a diverse field, but the answer to your question is NOW. Don't waste time. I wished I got serious about programming when I was in my teens.

Its never too early or too late . You should invest your spare time to keep yourself updated with the latest technology, software etc which would supplement your coursework and  come handy once you start working .

2nd year is a not a bad time to start. Though you could have started much earlier. In my experience (at least in the perspective of IT ) you have to unlearn a lot of things you learnt at the university when you get to the industry . I've found it much easier to go with the industry practices first and not get stuck in the university's frame of reference. Sure they're important but it won't really get you anywhere in the industry.
