Well if 2.0 has jumped the shark , then that must mean it’s time for 3.0: Web 3.0: Is It About Personalization? – ReadWriteWeb
. I have seen a few write-up’s on what the next generation of web technology, but this is one of the nest short summaries I’ve seen (that I agree with):
“Web 1.0: Centralized Them. Web 2.0: Distributed Us. Web 3.0: Decentralized Me,” he wrote. “[Web 3.0 is] about me when I don’t want to participate in the world. It’s about me when I want to have more control of my environment particularly who I let in. When my attention is stretched who/what do I pay attention to and who do I let pay attention to me. It is more effective communication for me!”
The exciting part about this to me is that the directions in IT and manufacturing are converging: it’s all going to me about me (not me specifically, but each of you…maybe it’s the royal me?).
