Twine & Web 3.0

Posted on: October 28, 2008

I have just discovered Twine which is a new generation of social bookmarking that combines Twitter like functions as well as allowing you to make connections and meet new people. It is like a social network for sharing, organizing and finding knowledge – a social network search engine if you like. Described as a hub of collective intelligence, its aim is to become your primary touch-point for content on the Web.

While I’m still getting to grips with how it works and creating my own twines etc. I also found an interesting interview on Future Blogger with Nova Spivack – Twine Creator and CEO, about Twine and its direction as well as the future of the Semantic web.

This graph from the interview looks at the future direction of the web, and that how as technologies become more advanced how our methods of finding information on the web evolve.

Interestingly it suggests that the era of Web 2.0 will soon be over – well 2010.  Meaning that the internet will be moving from its current social system to a semantic approach where technologies will become more intelligent and so organise our information by having a better understanding of the meaning of our data.

While this may mean that Google will have to up its game in the next couple of years to maintain its dominance of the Web, it does mean that as we start to enter this web 2.0/ 3.0 mashup we should probably start thinking about taking a semantic approach.
