What’s Web 3.0?

I had a post about What’s Web 2.0 ? back on April 16, 2007. Web 2.0 is popular now but still new for most people who don’t spend too much time online. Web 2.0 represents the recent evolution of the World Wide Web. Nowadays, many technologists, journalists, and industry leaders have used the term “Web 3.0” to hypothesize about a future wave of Internet innovation.

Among those views from industry leaders, I like what Jerry Yang, founder and Chief of Yahoo, talked about Web 2.0 and Web 3.0 :

Web 2.0 is well documented and talked about. The power of the Net reached a critical mass, with capabilities that can be done on a network level. We are also seeing richer devices over last four years and richer ways of interacting with the network, not only in hardware like game consoles and mobile devices, but also in the software layer. You don’t have to be a computer scientist to create a program. We are seeing that manifest in Web 2.0 and 3.0 will be a great extension of that, a true communal medium…the distinction between professional, semi-professional and consumers will get blurred, creating a network effect of business and applications.
