The introduction of personal web
Blinking images and static
HTML used to create pages
Webpages managed by the
History of the Web
Berners-Lee envisioned a read/write web
We weren’t ready in the 1990’s for such
a big step
We started with a read-only web – a
place where everyone could read
whatever they wanted, but only a select
few (programmers) could write web
This was Web 1.0.
Blogs and Content Management
Personal webpages use CSS
The power of creating pages is
transferred to the masses
Community and collaboration
Web 2.0 History
The term quot;Web 2.0quot; was coined at a conference
brainstorming session between O'Reilly and
MediaLive International in 2004
Also referred to as the “Participatory Web” or the
Fulﬁlls Berners-Lee’s original vision for the WWW
Web 2.0 is People
Web 1.0 was Commerce
Web 2.0 is People
- Ross Mayﬁeld
The introduction of tools like blogs, wikis,
tags, widgets and RSS have made it so that
anyone can write to the web
Wisdom of the Crowds
The Wisdom of Crowds by James Surowiecki
“Two heads are better than one.”
Allowing the public to edit/contribute to your content
will lead to more valuable content
Wikis, Tagging, Hyperlinking and Reviews
Giving everyone a voice
Is Web 2.0 Dead?
Popular opinion seems to lean toward
the term Web 2.0 being dead
Does that mean that the philosophies
behind Web 2.0 are dead?
Does that mean there is a Web 3.0?
Long Live Web 2.0
Collaboration is here to stay
Collective Intelligence is here to stay
User generated content is here to stay
And they’re all growing
The Future ... Web 3.0?
quot;THE IDEA THAT A DEEPER AND TIGHTER COUPLING BETWEEN THE
ONLINE AND OFFLINE WORLDS WILL ACCELERATE SCIENCE,
BUSINESS, SOCIETY, AND SELF-ACTUALIZATION.quot; - DR. GARY FLAKE
Connecting data silos
And more of the same
To many, Web 3.0 is something called the Semantic
Web, a term coined by Tim Berners-Lee.
The Semantic Web is a place where machines can
read Web pages much as we humans read them, a
place where search engines and software agents can
better troll the Net and ﬁnd what we're looking for.
quot;It's a set of standards that turns the Web into one
big database,quot; says Nova Spivack, CEO of Radar
Networks, one of the leading voices of this new-age
The term cloud computing probably comes from (at least partly)
the use of a cloud image to represent the Internet.
Cloud computing is now associated with a higher level
abstraction of the cloud. Instead of there being data pipes,
routers and servers, there are now services.
In essence this is distributed computing. Cloud computing really
is accessing resources and services needed to perform functions
with dynamically changing needs.
An example of this would be Google Apps and/or Zoho ofﬁce.
Both the applications and the data are stored out in the cloud.
Designed for humans ﬁrst and machines second,
microformats are a set of simple, open data
formats built upon existing and widely adopted
standards (HTML & XML).
Instead of throwing away what works today,
microformats intend to solve simpler problems ﬁrst
by adapting to current behaviors and usage
Connecting data silos
Right now our data is stored in several silos (trapped and
accessible from only one place)
My images are on Flickr and then I have to upload them to
Facebook and then I have to link to them from FriendFeed.
My contacts are different on each service because I have to
remember to invite my friends in all places
We need to ﬁnd technologies to connect all of these social
networks so that we can access everything from everywhere
Users are started to expect more and more from
More of the same
User generated content is going to be key
The wisdom of crowds has been extremely
successful in projects like Wikipedia and the
open source movement - and isn’t going away
Sites that don’t allow users to participate are
going to fall to the wayside
