What Will Web 3.0 look like?

In (very) short:

Web 1.0
was about: personal web pages, corporate catalogs, content-only journalism, chat rooms, online purchases in online shops, static HTML + dynamic Javascript

Web 2.0 is about: sharing in general (thoughts on blogs, pictures, contacts, etc.) , collective content creation, professionals-amateurs interactions, user reviews, collaborative tools, php + MySQL + AJAX (Javascript + XML), live personalized interfaces (RSS, podcast), VoIP

Web 3.0 will be about: bringing together mobility and Web 2.0; making use of wider broadbands to ensure the integration of Voice, Video, Music, Text, Images, GPS in mobile devices such as cell phones in general, iPods, Blackberries, Blueberries, Strawberries, etc. Tomorrow´s mobile devices will look pretty much alike in terms of functionalities. What about design? Will Apple become the world´s n.1 mobile phones manufacturer?

5 Comments:

  • Web 4.0 will be about : entering the fifth dimension, connecting ETs with human beings, sharing supernova's memories and transplanting a PC in each baby's brain.

  • What I would be interested in, is the use we make of Web 1,2,3.0 together with mobile technologies in order to really start working a different way. What I find desperate is that we add IT progress to an "out of date" way of working. We still go to our offices, loose time in the traffic jam, work from 9am to 6am, and go to school just as 50 years ago! Technology goes faster than us and, in some way, we use it to make us even more crazy instead of using it to deeply change the rules. Politician should include in their staff real people living a real life to make them work on the correct use of techs…

  • Dear Anonymous,

    As far as I´m concerned, I think your remark is very true.

    During a conversation I had yesterday with my boss, he mentioned the fact that his 7-years old son asked questions to Google rather than his parents. It´s faster, more convenient, and he avoids being blamed when he doesn´t know something apparently obvious. Will our children learn everything by themselves? Will School become a dusty, forgotten institution? Is it already the case?

    It actually seems that IT is actually changing slowly the way we behave and act: look at e-mails. Can you remember working without e-mails? Don´t you think life was sincerely different?
    What about mobile phones? Blackberries? etc.

    Life isn´t changing. The world, the environment is changing. So life is adapting slowly.

    About politicians: isn´t it eventually a good thing that they stay away of real life, real people? Greek Mythology´s God Midas used to convert in gold everything he touched. It looks to me as if the bulk of politicians convert in a mess any subject they intend to deal with...

    Thanks anyways for your extremely interesting message. I hope we keep the good work.

  • Web 3.0: more pastel shades and even more gradients and rounded corners! just follow 37signals and flickr and you're good to go...

    Me? I'm waiting for when people remind that there's more to internet than just the web (WWW) with its web designers with too little on their hands.

    I'm really afraid when people think that google and wikipedia are good sources for information (f.e. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazi_moon_base). I really hope I didn't break Godwin's law here.

  • Kari,

    You´ve raised a point on which I should comment soon. I´ll post something on content quality on the Internet. Your remark on Google and Wikipedia are extremely interesting. People (and most of all teenagers, who use Wikipedia for their homework) should be warned that what they read is ´dangerous´. Exactly like the message on cigarettes pack...
