What is Web 3.0? Eric Schmidt’s view

January 26, 2008

I’ve been meaning to blog about this video clip of Google CEO Eric Schmidt’s take on Web 3.0.  It’s a fascinating explanation and prediction of the next phase of the Internet.  His explanation is so good, I’d rather let you just listen to the explanation rather than attempt to paraphrase it.  You can tell this guy has a Ph.D.

We’re probably not yet there at Web 3.0, but the possibilities seem fast approaching.  We’ve barely had time to digest Web 2.0, but here’s a video with a good explanation of the history behind the term Web 2.0.

In my legal scholarship, I try to analyze complications created by new technologies for existing paradigms of law, usually in the area of intellectual property.  Right now, I’m continuing my exploration of how Web 2.0 affects our copyright laws.  Hopefully, I’ll have a draft soon to share online.
