And we're there! - WEB3.0?

It was only a matter of time before someone starts talking about Web3.0 after the hype of Web2.0 usage.

We had a discussion on Web2.0 at the Digital Studies online seminar this week and one of the consensus was that there is something on Web2.0 but that it is not defined at all and has become a hype, a buzz word. Especially Igor Vobič was quite critical of the concept - and I quite liked his comparison that web2.0 has replaced the "e"- hype (e-democracy, e-particpation etc.).

Well - according to the author of UTube blog (which is quite revealing) Edward Lee, we are heading to the era of Web3.0 - it is supposed to be characterized by "umbundlness" and "embedeness" - with total flow from one information and mode to another.
