A Window Into The Future Of The Web

A Window Into The Future Of The Web | Digital Culture | Scoop.it
The Web is changing. It's becoming a thinner, personalized, pervasive, ambient, assistive layer that weaves into our life. So what new opportunities does this create?

Web 3.0 – Artificial Intelligence?

Web 3.0 – Artificial Intelligence? | Digital Culture | Scoop.it

Representing the Digital Enterprise Research Institute, Liam Ó Móráin , recently discussed the work of the DERI on the Semantic Web and the move from Web 2.0 to Web 3.0.

Liam explains how the evolution of Web 2.0 to Web 3.0 (also known as Semantic Web) is taking the web experience to the user in a new and more powerful way. Web 3.0 will quickly and easily combine information from very diverse sources and serve the information to the user, based on intelligent browsing.

What will the internet look like in 2040?

What will the internet look like in 2040? | Digital Culture | Scoop.it

A journalist recently asked me what I think the internet will look like in 2040. The question took me a little by surprise, because despite working in the technology industry for the last two years and witnessing the drastic changes that have taken place, I’ve never really taken a step back from it all and thought what the world might be like in ten years, let alone 25 years.

How Entropy Is Creating Web 3.0 Under Our Noses

How Entropy Is Creating Web 3.0 Under Our Noses | Digital Culture | Scoop.it

Brian Cox's sand castle entropy lesson helped me see into how and why the web is disassembling - Entropy. Think of Web 2.0 as the top of a bell curve where we've organized into a series of sand castles (see chart at bottom for graphic of the Web's Entropy Wave). The web's entropy wind is dismantling the low entropy environment we've created NOW to a more loosely defined higher entropy Web 3.0.

Entropy and 2013
Little did I know how accurate this article was/is. The web and what we know as "websites" is changing. I saw a great statement today. In an article I scooped about the 20 trends of 2013 http://www.scoop.it/t/design-revolution/p/3994915454/20-web-development-and-design-trends-2013-from-creative-maniacs .

 

The article discusses the loosening of the web. Static pages defined a priori are going away. Code and systems design will replace predefined pages with pages created on the fly. 

The advantage to creating pages on the fly is HUGE. Pages are more easily tuned to their audience in the moment. You might we wondering how this would work. 

Let's say you arrive at this page from my Mobile Revolution. There is content here tagged "mobile" so that mobile content, given your previous location, would become could be re-positioned to create ScentTrail, a sense of a meaningful path. 

Visitors can branch and websites of the not very distant future will simply reform around the path. If we stand at the end of the static web on the gates of the dynamic and algorithm controlled one the ultimate destination is the fluid intuitive semantic web. 

Entropy's roll is to continue to remove organization, there is a video in the piece showing how sand is much more likely to build random piles than sand castles. The web is headed in the direction of random sand piles than sand castles.

There is another seemingly tangential reason I think entropy is inevitable. We are changing too. The web isn't passive. To interact with it is to be changed. One of my favorite books is A Whole New Mind: Why Right Brainers Will Rule The Future by Daniel Pink  http://www.danpink.com/books/whole-new-mind

 

Right brainers are creatives and left brainers are detailed oriented engineers. Pink's persuasive argument is we've engineered as far as we can. Think of the web. The pressure on Internet marketing now is NOT creation of a website anyone can do that. The pressure is in creating content that wins hearts and minds.

You see the movement from left-brain to right. The web needed to be built, but now that it is creating art is what matter most. Artists are also much more tuned to entropy. Artists routinely build and tear, tear and build. 

Entropy, the natural move from organization to randomness, favors artists and his happening faster and faster. 

I kept riffing on entropy on Google Plus: https://plus.google.com/u/0/102639884404823294558/posts/SvgmhHHKL6D
