John Smart, futurist

«Web 3.0 – the convergence of the real and the virtual world” .Poyavlenie ideas: 2010

The essence of the idea

The main feature of the real world, which distinguishes him now from the virtual, three-dimensional Smart calls. Once the content Web 2.0 technology 3D (including augmented reality), as well as migration of traditional media formats (TV, radio, press) on the Internet achieved a certain “critical mass”, then we can talk about the coming of an era Web 3.0. The user will not feel any difference between the real and virtual space in terms of household living arrangement.

Smart scenario, the benefit of the respected futurist, is coming true: growing market Smart-TV, connect the TV to the Internet, develops 3D-TV infrastructure. There are virtual analogue stores, and soon it will be possible to communicate as the real thing. But still – soon, but not right now. Because today’s Web corresponds to the “third level” for the smart only 7 out of 10.

     Jay Jamison, an investor

«Web 3.0 – is a mobile Web» .Poyavlenie ideas: 2012

The essence of the idea

From the standpoint of Jamieson, Web 1.0 – it’s “just a link” between users, Web 2.0 – «social» Communication and Web 3.0 – a “mobile” communication. Last characterized, first, a permanent human presence online (mobile phone is always in your pocket), and secondly, the ability to quickly create media content (photos, videos, audio recordings) to upload on the Web, as well as to show their geographic coordinates.

Jamieson, apparently, did not set out prognostic problems: he only shared the observations of the current state of affairs on the Web, which, in general, consistent with its conceptual vision of the third version of the World Wide Web. Web has become mobile, but with nuances: there are technological imperfections (“lag”, MBs, in fact, billing), and are not quite adequate conditions for roaming providers. Once these details disappear, we, of course, put a modern Web maximum score for Jamison. While 9 out of 10.

  Tim Berners Lee, the creator of HTML

«Web 3.0 – is a semantic web” .Poyavlenie ideas: 2006

The essence of the idea

“Semantic Web” by Tim Berners Lee – data space, access to which there is not on the basis of their similarity to a user request (“I need information pertaining to something”), but on the principle of strict compliance with these requests (“I need such and such information about something “). In this case, the search engine (or directory) should be able to find information, not on the basis of the analysis of the text, and the analysis of the meaning of the text – something like that would make a person.

The fact that the Web distant future will be a “semantic”, Tim announced in the magazine Scientific American in 2001. After 5 years, Tim has admitted that his proposed concept is not yet very real, but not abandoned it, expressing hope that the Web is still ever much to be “semantic” state, while reaching 3.0.

In today’s Web, there are projects aimed at finding data on a “semantic web»:, However, the volumes of data processed by such systems, yet immeasurably small compared with the traditional search engines traffic. “Semantic Web”, is likely to be developed in parallel to existing technologies. As soon as its use becomes the norm rather than entertainment or experiment – we will credit this Web as a candidate “to increase” according to Tim Berners Lee. Now put only 2 points out of 10.

     Robert Scoble, blogger

«Web 3.0 – it’s a personal choice of Web content” .Poyavlenie ideas: 2007 year.

The essence of the idea

On the 2nd the first version of the Web American unoriginal: first were static pages, then social networks and various “wiki”. The third version of the Web, as Scoble said, should appear pages, transforming in the same window from one type to another by the user: Twitter, for example, should be on the first click a mailbox, SMS-service or a road map.

Sufficiently similar to the description Scoble properly arranged services Google and Yandex: here you and the road map, and a mailbox, social networks, news and even a translator – and, in fact, in the single window. However, this approach to filling the content has not yet become the standard for the Web. Search engines are, for the most part, the search: the same news as he read mainly on specialized portals. Because we put the current Web 5 points out of 10 for compliance with the level of 3.0. scrape by.

     Jerry Yang, Yahoo founder

«Web 3.0 – the one without the boundaries between professionals and amateurs,” The emergence of the idea: 2006

The essence of the idea

Jerry suggested that in the near future creation of sites will no longer be the prerogative of professional developers. Tools to create (and promote) is quite competitive online projects get end users. Thus, if in times of Web 1.0 pro involved in creating and filling in the sites, while Web 2.0 – mostly only in the creation, in the era of Web 3.0, and both will be able to make anyone – without knowledge of HTML and even has a special talent in design.

What Young said, was to a certain extent relevant today. Take the same “Sites Google» or WordPress: the user is completely free design, all kinds of “sliders” and scripts, as well as detailed guidance on their use. However, the solutions “for the people” based on yet very simplified technology and can be useful, perhaps, for aspiring entrepreneurs who want at least some online presence, or students for assignments in computer science. Conformity assessment of the current Web «third level” according to the criteria of the Yang – 4 points out of 10.
