How Entropy Is Creating Web 3.0 Right Under Our Noses [Video]

How Entropy Is Creating Web 3.0 Right Under Our Noses [Video] | Curation Revolution |

Marty Note
Happy Black Friday to my friends still in e-commerce. Rock on guys (and girls).

This piece is about how the web is in a constant and relentless search for higher states of entropy and what that means for Web 3.0. Every Internet marketer knows something BIG is changing again.

Since BIG CHANGE is the only constant in my 12 years as an Internet marketer I wanted to spend the day thinking about WHY change seems to come in waves. 

Entropy is the answer and it is good news for the rebel alliance and bad news for institutional "Stars" of the web.

Marty, great post. Really enjoyed it.

I've said web developers of the future will need to start studying the history of open source software and how it changed software as we know it. The same thing is happening to the web. As we move to web 3.0 it becomes more web open source 3.0. User generated web development. Just look at a the amount of API's that are used across the web, throw in sites like and now you have user generated web development that is cross platform. Entropy cannot be contained.

Social Media - Embrace The Suck
Turns out marketing and war have a lot in common as this Curagami post shares. Twitter is reeling in pain and social media marketing is entering the BIG SHAKEOUT period. 

Don't question, judge or cry too much. Grab you Vines, put them on YouTube and (or the best of 'em anyway) and move on. Remember nobody knows nothing and watch your ego and hubris enough to keep betting without the false belief you've found any lasting truth or repeatable pattern. 

Life after Vine's death and the Big Shakeout is going to, as the Marines say, embrace the suck. Find out why on Curagami:
