I’ve just attended a three-week workshop on web journalism and Web 2.0 in Macau, China.
Last night, I came across a CNN blog about Web 3.0. I hardly have time to digest things that I learned about Web 2.0, and here comes Web 3.0.
Whew! The Internet changes, and it changes really fast!
Aside from the May 4 to 22 web journalism workshop, I also attended a one-day web journalism seminar, one of the events leading to the 6th Asia Media Summit, also held in Macau.
In that seminar, I heard for the first time the term “visual radio.” I asked myself: what the heck? Visual radio? Duh, then it’s no longer radio!
But lo! There is indeed a “visual radio,” and there’s also a “Visual Radio,” a product of Nokia. These changes in technology never cease to amaze me.
On CNN’s SciTechBlog, CNN.com writer/producer John D. Sutter enumerated some interesting tidbits about Web 3.0.
He said the flow of information is becoming quicker online. You said it Sutter! Right on the money!
Based on these trends, I think anything “micro” may become a prominent feature of Web 3.0. Just look at the popularity of Twitter, a microblogging site.
Size does matter.
