At the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos (Switzerland) 2,400 leaders in business, politics and science do chat about the Future and Past in different areas.
They use accurate mediums to publish informations - a blog. Every participant - including Microsoft chairman Bill Gates - has been asked to post at least once, according to this article.
This afternoon, I followed the discussion about Web 2.0 with Leaders from Microsoft, Flickr, Nike, Fortune and more. The topic aimed less about technique and more about participation, community, sharing, individualization of content and services.... order your individual, unique styled Nike-Shoes... Customize your desktop and web... just be a part of it.
Web 2.0 is everywhere. And Web 3.0 is already on its way....
Update 2007 (WEF): Beyond Web 2.0 -- From Content to Collective Knowledge?
While social networks and community-oriented interactive sites, known as Web 2.0, continue to gain pace, the advent of Web 3.0 is already taking shape. In this Update, panellists (WEF) will discuss how a fundamental, technology-enabled "semantic Web" could develop over the coming four to five years, driven by hyper personalization coupled with advances in meta tagging and search, revolutionizing the way the knowledge is shared.
Hope, I will find the according WEF potcast.
