Here is the explanation of Web 3.0 concept.
The slides summ up the main differences between Web 1.0, Web 2.0 and Web 3.0.

Web 1.0 – That Geocities & Hotmail era was all about read-only content
and static HTML websites. People preferred navigating the web through
link directories of Yahoo! and dmoz.

Web 2.0 – This is about user-generated content and the read-write web.
People are consuming as well as contributing information through blogs
or sites like Flickr, YouTube, Digg, etc. The line dividing a consumer
and content publisher is increasingly getting blurred in the Web 2.0
era.

Web 3.0 – This will be about semantic web (or the meaning of data),
personalization (e.g. iGoogle), intelligent search and behavioral
advertising among other things.

“Semantic” and “Individual” are the key words.

I found a bit interesting post on The Octane Factory titled “Do You Really Need a Website Designer?”

If you bring up the subject of web design with small business people, it wouldn’t take you too long to find someone who has been burned by a web designer. Sadly, some have even come to the conclusion that a web site is not worth the expense, the time or the hassle. I sat down recently and took a look at how and why that happens and hopefully outline some success principles that will help you when you need web design services. Since so many web designers get it wrong, the web design principles that actually work may surprise you.

There is a serious flaw in the web design industry, and small business owners are especially prone to fall victim to it. The problem is that usually, very little business planning goes into a web site design. Too many web designers are more concerned with selling web design with cool movies and effects, than taking the time to build an effective web site that

Here is my comment on this post.

I consider web person should have marketing logic to optimize the site for client’s marketing, business, and branding strategy. As a matter of fact, many web designers tend to construct the site with just their interests on technologies or gimmick as they have been grown up and become as a “Web Designer” without learning conceptual logic of “Design” and “Marketing” They need to know “Design without concept” is just a “Decoration” In other words, the definition of “Web Designer” is often vague, and skill and knowledge of “Web Designer” is different depending on designers or design studios. Sometimes, they are just user interface designers, programmers, Flashers. On the other hand, we can find an excellent “Web Designer” who has its own online marketing logic which could leverage client’s business, revenue, or conversion rate. I, personally, now we are getting into pretty exciting period we can create various online marketing mix using conventional web technologies, new technologies and media. “Web Designer” should learn it could be more exciting to work not only on “Design” “Effect” or “Gimmick” but also on true online “Marketing” that makes them grow as a “Web Director” or “Web Producer.”

David Meerman Scott writes about his “The Web as a city” analogy in his latest post. I think it makes sense, and as he mentioned, I find it is a good one to discuss with social media cynics and those who cannot see the value of this important form of communication.
I always think the Web as a “Service at shops, restaurants, or hotel in a city.” Therefore, my analogy to see the service or operation at those places has been changed since I started to work on the Web.
Worth a reading.

I’m fond of thinking of the Web as a city.

Seeing the Web as a city helps make sense of each aspect of online life and how we create and interact.
Corporate sites are the storefronts on main street peddling wares. Craigslist is like the bulletin board at the entrance of the corner store; Ebay, a garage sale; Amazon, a bookstore replete with patrons anxious to give you their two cents. Mainstream media sites like The New York Times online are the newspapers of the city. Chatrooms and forums are the pubs and salons of the online world. You’ve even got the proverbial wrong-side-of-the-tracks spots via the Web’s adult-entertainment and sp*m underbelly.

Social media is a cocktail party

Not Gozilla. It’s Mozilla…
Innovation and continuous improvement could always bring something.
Who imagined the market share of Internet Explorer sinking in 2001?

Mozilla’s Firefox web browser surpassed 20 percent worldwide market share for the first time last month, according to new data from Net Applications. That’s a huge milestone for the open source web browser, which was first released (the 1.0 version) by Mozilla almost exactly four years ago (November 9, 2004), at a time when Microsoft’s Internet Explorer had a choke-hold over the web browsing industry with a market share well over 90 percent.

Today, Firefox is firmly the second most popular browser out there. It continues to gain share even at a time when other companies are releasing new browsers on a wide range of new devices. Apple, for example, has seen great growth in mobile web browsing on its Safari web browser built for the iPhone. Meanwhile, gaming systems like Sony’s Playstation 3 and Nintendo’s Wii have web browsers built in as well (the PS3’s is built by NetFront, while the Wii’s is built by Opera).
