  • Hi,
    For me Web 3.0 won't exist. Tim O'Reilly who created the term Web 2.0, talks know about Web Squared.

    I worked with a graphical designer to explain this vision here :

  • Great presentation Richard.
    I think theres a lot between these two major trends: 'real time' and 'open'.

    Have a look at reality television - as open as it can get - (and potentially anyone can be that talent) - the better it will be accepted (Susan Doyle)... and of course it all happens live!

    The web took it few steps ahead: Everyone can really play!
    - everyone can create and follow other's create. (The stages are many)
    - you better watch it today, for tomorrow there will be something else to watch.

    Won't we get tired by year 2010?
