I keep being asked about web3.0, including this week by ITPro.
Well, unsurprisingly, I don't presume to know what will mark out this new integer. But I do think real-time content that's computed and computes will be pretty significant to the web's future development.
Here's where I'm coming from.
Most definitions of web2.0 seem to boil down to "users making the content", often where immediacy is crucial to its significance. But there's also real-time content that's computer generated, where a new answer is made through real-time processing of existing or web2.0 style base content.
Custom, interactive apps made on-the-fly just for you: that's a paradigm shift I'm looking forward to.
