Web 3.0 (again)

The Big G defines Web 3.0 via our friends at RRW:

Schmidt launched into a great definition of Web 3.0. He said that while Web 2.0 was based on Ajax, Web 3.0 will be “applications that are pieced together” – with the characteristics that the apps are relatively small, the data is in the cloud, the apps can run on any device (PC or mobile), the apps are very fast and very customizable, and are distributed virally (social networks, email, etc).

Looks like widgets are at it again. Yikes.

  • yes. I love widgets, but the whole "web 3.0" thing is rediculous. There isnt anything going on really except blogs still.

    Allan, I agree that the attempt to categorize a movement is a bit difficult. I am a bit curious about the second part of your comment. What do you mean there isn't anything going on other than blogs? Thoughts? Would love to hear more. Thx!

  • I would like to comment on this blog by adding that web standard are super important. For example what is currently taking place between Adobe and Apple.
