  3. buzz buzz What is Web 3.0? buzz buzz bu buzz zz People can not agree upon… buzz the name the definition the existence “Once the ‘point ohs’ come out, there’s no stopping them. What the heck. I say we should start Web 4.0” Sonja Hyde-Moyer, SHM Project “Just as 'dot com' is the term for the first era of the Web, and 'web 2.0' the second, there will be a new term that bubbles up at the right time to describe the next era” Richard MacManus, ReadWriteWeb “The Semantic Web (or Web 3.0) promises to ‘organize the world’s information’ in a dramatically more logical way than Google can ever achieve with their current engine design.” Marc Fawzi, Evolving Trends “Web 2.0 is a marketing term, and I think you've just invented Web 3.0” Eric Schmidt, CEO of Google “If Web 2.0 was so hot, how about Web 3.0? This has been a recurrent theme of would-be meme-engineers who want to position their startup as the next big thing. ” Tim O’Reilly, O’Reilly Radar 3
  5. The Theory of Biological Evolution In the beginning… • the world was full of genetic code • this code formed into vessels of information • the basic unit of biological information was known as: the gene • the gene could store, duplicate, and transmit data • with duplication came interpretation and mutation • with mutation came specialization • genes better suited for certain tasks begun to work together • beneficial partnerships led to the first “organisms” 5
  6. The Theory of Cultural Evolution On an ongoing basis… • the world is full of loose ideas • ideas that propagate from one mind to another • tunes, catch phrases, beliefs, fads, earworms, technology, art, etc. • the basic unit of cultural information is known as: the meme • groups of memes form together into “memeplexes” that form the basis of beliefs, social eras, etc. • word of mouth, syndication, feedback, and social groups all have a role in the spreading of memes • the internet is the great big meme-machine 6
  7. Survival of the Fittest Only the best make it… • some memes are a flash in the pan • some memes never even get so far as a flash • some, however, change the fabric of our internet culture 7

  13. Introducing Web 3.0 What could it mean? • How will our information be organized? • Will we still do the “surfing” or will the machine surf for us? • Will the web look the same for me as it does for everyone else? • What technology will become commonplace? Obsolete? 13
  14. The Semantic Web (The Next Big Thing?) The Semantic Web is “a web of data”. HTML describes documents, while RDF describes things. Why talk about a “page” in terms of style and links, when you know a book has chapters and a CD has tracks? • CHALLENGES - Human error and system abuse - Selfishness, why take the time to teach the machine how to teach me? • OPPORTUNITIES - Those young people love their RSS feeds - Data portability and sharing standards are so 2008 - If we were all so selfish, Web 2.0 would have never worked (etc Wikipedia) • BOTTOMLINE (why we should care…) It’s not just for academics anymore.
