Web 2.0 Movement or Are We at Web 3.0
For some strange reason, I've been doing a lot of writing and research on matters related to Web 2.0. It seems the development of social media has progressed faster than expected. Additionally, the current economic condition has opened the door for new cost-effective opportunities and ideas.
It seems that technology is reaching another critical point in business and society. Mobile technology is, for the most part, ready to take the next step. Social networking has fleshed out the once sterile environment of the web. NetBooks, combined with web applications, have introduced a new way of personal computing. Mix Google and a few other players in the mix, and it's not hard to see that something will be born in technology, which means something will have to die.
I ran across an interesting article concerning the evolution of blogs. Just as hardware eventually becomes a commodity in the marketplace, apparently so does software, which includes the concept of blogging. Overall, I think it's a good thing, and I'll explain this a little in my next entry.
