What is Web 3.0?

Answer

I have no idea! I think partially it may be hype.

Here is an interesting article about web 3.0 and how it will impact learning:

However, I don't see any kind of organizing principle behind this term yet that makes it gel, at least as far as I can tell.

By comparison, web 2.0 as I understand it is the social web -- websites that work by users interacting with them and generating content, as opposed to a static, virtual brochure website. Facebook, Twitter (and even this website) are all about what the users generate.

I look forward to hearing what others think web 3.0 is!
