The definition of Web 3.0

I recently had a conversation with someone on what exactly web 3.0 is? It is quite a funny thing. Before I tell you my opinion on it I want to know what you think.


Analyzing the Blogosphere… how?

I saw a video yesterday (link) that spoke about how much information is being generated in today’s information age.  More information is getting generated annually than has been created in the previous 5000 years. It is kind of halarious, and also a little  bit of a problem. How will his enormous amount of information ever be analyzed?

I have been working on a blog that will be public and will gather feedback on political issues. The information that we collect will need to be analyzed. Meaning each comment will need to be reviewed and then tagged and categorized. Are there any WordPress widgets currently available that will make it so I can tag and categorize blog post comments?

What is the future of IT?

Goodbye Web 1.0

At work I was asked to find a few quotes on setting up a blog and wiki website including hosting. In doing this I learned how drastically things have changed in the last few years. It seems to me that the attention of the masses has been refocused to the collection of weblog sites being referred to as the Blogosphere. These new “Web 2.0” websites are involved with mass collaboration and they allow for self determination of privacy.  Websites that fail to provide a means for the readers to collaborate together and be part of the conversation are quickly being forgotten. Also people are quickly losing patience with websites that fail to provide integration with related services. The 2.0 world in all about integration. Some examples are available in the article discussing the term Mash-ups.

So I am officially saying goodbye to the world of siloed, static, informative, read-only, web 1.0 websites.

Goodbye Web 1.0!


Identity 2.0 – Who will solve it first?

I first saw Dick do his presentation a few months ago on Identity 2.0. Since that time I have become a web 2.0 Uber nerd by signing up for Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Wikipedia, WordPress, Digg,  and Delicious. Well, I have had a facebook account for  quite a while,  but all the others new in the past couple of months. (FYI, I joined twitter before @Oprah)

So my questions is how will Identity 2.0 be realized? Will it evolve into existence like a virus as all the web 2.0 apps attach each other together? Or  will there be some big bang restructuring?
