Semantic Web:

Web 3.0 is a term used to describe interactive/semantically organized applications that are used to generate/share content and connect users based on areas of mutual interest.  The founding web development organization defines it in the following way:

The Semantic Web provides a common framework that allows data to be shared and reused across application, enterprise, and community boundaries. It is a collaborative effort led by W3C with participation from a large number of researchers and industrial partners. It is based on the Resource Description Framework (RDF).”   (WC3)

Cloud Computing – ubiquitous data

This demonstration from the TED Conference (Technology, Entertainment, Design Feb 2009) illustrates the concept of pairing the semantic web with always on technology.

Web 2.0/3.0 Interactive Ingredients/Tools:

Interact:

  1. 2.0: Tools that allow for information sharing – open source web tools (e.g., Wikis, Blogs, Google’s gadgets: Docs, Notebook, Scholar & Adobe.com)
  2. Tools that allow us to interact in real-time/share information (Web 3.0 semantic web) for enhancing classroom multimedia, networking and research (Ted Conferences, Twine, Twitter, Monitter, Skype, iTunes, CurrentTV, Vimeo & You Tube)>
