Posted on Thursday, Sep 6th 2007

I have worked with the Web 3.0 framework for months now, and taken a crack at defining how the web is likely to evolve in the future. So here’s a recap of the thesis so far. I will be adding a dimension to this framework shortly, so it is a good time to stop and take stock of what we have discussed so far in a synthesized format.

Definition:

* Web 3.0 = (4C + P + VS)
* Web 3.0 and the Semantic Web

Verticals:
