  1. 1. Beyond Web 2.0... What’s Next? Nicole C. Engard Open Source Evangelist, LibLime
  2. 2. History of the Web
  3. 3. Web 1.0 The introduction of personal web pages Blinking images and static content HTML used to create pages Webpages managed by the experts
  4. 4. 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 pages. This was Web 1.0.
  5. 5. Web 2.0 Blogs and Content Management Systems Personal webpages use CSS The power of creating pages is transferred to the masses Community and collaboration
  6. 6. 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 “Read/Write Web” Fulfills Berners-Lee’s original vision for the WWW
  7. 7. 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
  8. 8. Web 2.0 Titles
  9. 9. 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 Blogging
  10. 10. Library 2.0 Books
  11. 11. 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?
  12. 12. 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
  13. 13. 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 Semantic web Cloud computing Microformats Connecting data silos And more of the same
  14. 14. Semantic Web 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 Internet.,2817,2102852,00.asp
  15. 15. Cloud Computing 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.
  16. 16. Microformats 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 patterns.
  17. 17. 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 technologies
  18. 18. 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
  19. 19. More to read Covers the history of crowdsourcing and how to use it in your business/library
  20. 20. More to Read Learn more about the digital natives and how they use technology
