This post by Michael Arrington of TechCrunch relates directly to this lovely article in Wired about Twine. There's a lot more to be said here, but suffice to say -- the social web has thus far been much less useful to me than my basic version of the semantic web. Or as Josh Cantone's contest in search of a definition for Web 3.0 called it, the "decentralized asynchronous me." He goes on further to write:
Blogger Jonas Bolinder has painstakingly assembled a list of some of the most talked about definitions of Web 3.0 over the past three years. He's broken them down into 4 basic definition groups: the Semantic Web (which is what might enable the "decentralized me"), the proliferation of APIs and web services (aren't we already living that?), the rise of the mobile web, smart devices, and web applications (maybe the just launched Live Mesh has something to do with Web 3.0?), and the "implicit web."
The winning "serious" definition simplified it this way:
Web 1.0 : Centralised Them
Web 2.0 : Distributed Us
Web 3.0 : Decentralised Me
