Comments on: The Web 3.0 Echo Chamber Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 By: Marc Walker Tue, 02 Jun 2009 09:17:54 +0000 The death of Web 2.0 – why do we have to be so hard about the beginning and end of phases of development in the evolution of the web. At the same time it is our obsession with the need to classify things that can lead us into these problems. If anything Web 3.0 – if that is what we are comfortable calling it – will see the development of long over due rules to help clarify information, the author, what it relates to and where it is stored. We cannot continue with a web where there is so much freedom to misinform.

My memory was playing tricks on me. The 2006 Web 2.0 Summit took place from Nov. 7-9. His article appeared a few days later.

And I am sure he’s probably right that Dan Gillmor was using Web 3.0 earlier than other people. I see Dan’s piece from 2005: r_on_grassroots/2005/04/ ml

The problem with Web 2.0 was that it was never well-defined. It was part industry rallying cry, partly a description of important technology developments that enabled things like Gmail, Flickr and YouTube. Partly it was just a promise to consumers that using the Web can and will get easier.

But, as a buzzword, Web 2.0/3.0 remains a pretty rocky edifice on which to build the next big thing.

and as long as we’re giving credit, let’s mention Dan Gilmore. Didn’t he coin the term???

The next web is about how to make the web more human through trust because trust is the glue in the real word and the web one too.

Call it that – Trusted Web. That’s a worthy goal.
