  • 1. Web 3.0 explained with a stamp (English version) Part I: the basics Part II: techniques
  • 2. A presentation from: Freek Bijl (Dutch) blog:
  • 3. When the web was in its early days, we didn’t know exactly what to show on a computer screen
  • 4. A company card?
  • 5. A call to action?
  • 6. A button ?
  • 7. A shop?
  • 8. We call this period web 1.0.
  • 9. Web 1.0 was all about our search for online viability.
  • 10. When we got a grip on the technical part, the real possibilities of the web became more clear.
  • 11. We discovered the power of networks.
  • 12. The power of links
  • 13. The power of collaboration
  • 14. The power of content and reach
  • 15. The power of friends
  • 16. This is what we call web 2.0.
  • 17. Web 2.0 is all about the power of networks.
  • 18. Basically, web 2.0 is a social change. The technical part of the web hasn’t changed very much.
  • 19. But, web 3.0 will be driven by technological changes.
  • 20. Web 3.0 - the semantic web - is about the meaning of data.
  • 21. ?
  • 22. Suppose, I am a stamp collector...
  • 23. Over the years I’ve collected a lot of stamps.
  • 24. About every stamp, I made a document
  • 25. That’s a lot of documents
  • 26. But…
  • 27. How will I find that specific stamp? ?
  • 28. Ah, of course !
  • 29. This is the web we have today: a huge collection of documents
  • 30. The words of all those documents are indexed. We can search for keywords.
  • 31. Now, suppose I search for all red stamps…
  • 32. What do I get ? Red stamps Stamps from Cambodia (Khmer Rouge) Stamps from the Red Sea Stamps from the 140 th anniversary of the Red Cross Stamps with red dragons
  • 33. Not very intelligent, but how can a computer know what I mean?
  • 34. Answer: when we structurally describe that a stamp is a stamp and red is a color.
  • 35. Describing data in a structured way can best be done in a database.
  • 36. Different databases can be connected.
  • 37. A database with stamps A database with countries A database with colours A database with stamp traders
  • 38. Web 3.0 creates a big collection of databases which can be connected on demand.
  • 39. Agreements are made on the structure of data and the way data is described. Where the data is located is irrelevant. Linking data is the power of web 3.0.
  • 40. So, “I want all the red stamps, designed in Europe, but used in the U.S.A., between 1980 and 1990” is a question that will get a better answer with web 3.0.
  • 41. (Note)
  • 42. This definition of web 3.0 is a ‘narrow’ definition. Like web 2.0, web 3.0 stands for a range of developments.
  • 43. A broader definition of web 3.0: A fast broadband connection to the internet, always and everywhere . Open source techniques and free data (Data as a Service) Open identities Software as a Service (e.g. Google docs)
