Eric Schmidt, Web 2.0 vs. Web 3.0

Web 3.0 – a different way of building applications: applications that are pieced together. A number of characteristics: applications are relatively small, the data is in the cloud, applications can run on any device … pc or mobile phone, applications are very fast and very customizable, the applications are distributed by virus, essentially virally … literally by social networks and email. You won’t go to the store and purchase them. A very different application model than ever seen in computing. Very large. Low barriers to entry. New generation of tools being announced by Google and others make it relatively easy to do, solves a lot of problems and works everywhere.
