The internet has been very useful and entertaining for communities all around the world but have you ever wondered how it might evolve? Indeed, all technologies must move forward and the same goes for the internet.
Web 3.0 is the next stage of evolution for the internet and it might fix one of the web's biggest issues today: the fact that companies such as Facebook, Google, and Amazon have unbridled control over the information superhighway. These companies not only control what information ends up getting presented to us, but they also can access the information we send out over the web.
Web 3.0 would introduce an internet closer to computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee’s original vision: an open information center uncontrolled by any central authority and accessible to anyone, without permission. This was sort of what the early days of the internet were like.
So how did the internet transform into the controlled version we have today? Who were the key players making this change? How are they responding to the emergence of Web 3.0? Will they have a say in whether Web 3.0 goes forward? When might we expect this latest evolution to take place? This video answers all these questions and more.
