Web 3.0


A fuzzy, amorphous term for some of the upcoming trends for the web.

As might be expected, different people have different ideas for what it is.

Some themes:

1 My hot takes

Web 3.0 IMO: as weird as Web 1.0, as easy to do and connect as Web 2.0. Agency, privacy, and ownership.

It should be more data ownership than self hosting. Self hosting is one route to ownership, but can be exclusionary. You shouldn't need to be a server administrator.

There is massive blockchain hype around the decentralisation piece. But this is putting the tech choice before the design choice.

There is a focus on some of the social and platform-based stuff, but what about the less social stuff? Banking, services, whatnot. (How solid is Tim’s plan to redecentralize the web? — Irina Bolychevsky)
