Power to the People: What’s After Web 2.0?











We are in a constant forward motion that excels at increasing speeds and all the while asking ourselves, “What’s next?” This question is especially relevant in the World Wide Web. “Most of the history of the Web is ahead of us. The Web is far from reaching its full potential as an agent of empowerment for everyone in the world.” *

Consider what the future will bring to you and your business: websites have more real estate with monitors only getting bigger; apps, web apps and social apps; 
real-time content through social media, what is the future of Twitter?; augmented reality, including facial recognition, bringing us to privacy issues; online TV, including the ability to create your own channels; online payment systems; Google Wave, with communication and collaboration in real time; is SEO on its way out?; the list could go on.

World Wide Web inventor Tim Berners-Lee’s vision for the Web was “a powerful force for social change and individual creativity.” “Something much more than a tool for research or communication; it is a new way of thinking and a means to greater freedom and social growth than ever before possible”.** In the hands of the public, the web is changing and evolving at our own hand. What’s will Web 3.0 be? Time will only tell, but all signs point to “power to the people”.
