What is Web 3.0? (Scripting News)

Dave Winer writes about What is the next web? Some people have a hard time to keep up with the first and second.

  • The next step is about professional media embracing the web
  • Newspapers will not die
  • The old media will be with us
  • The web is refining the surface and making it easier to use
  • Interactivity and participation is increasing and improving

What is Web 3.0? (Scripting News): "What is Web 3.0? Wednesday, May 23, 2007 by Dave Winer. First, I think of Web 2.0 as the Two-Way Web, the Read-Write Web, the Web of User-Generated Content.

It's Flickr and blogs and wikis. It's everybody creating the medium for everyone else. Permalink to this paragraph Imho, the next step after that, I hope, is the professional media fully embracing the new media, no longer see it as a threat to their continued employment. Seeing amateur public writing, the former audience who is no longer silent, as sources who can get attention for their ideas without going through an intermediary.

I think MSM will continue to shrink until they accept bloggers and podcasters as legitimate sources of news and perspective, without interpretation by professional reporters.

I totally disagree with my friend Robert Scoble who says that newspapers are dead. There's always been too much made of death in the tech world, in fact newspapers are still published, you can pick one up at any airport or train station. Many people have them delivered at home."
