Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Web 2.0 looking forward at what could/will be.

The question that Professor L. posted in the recent Google Doc. arose  “In the last section of the reading it speaks of applets in Web 2.0 enriching user experience. In the future, Web 3.0, what would be a hypothetical “level up” in enriching user experience?”  I am really interested in this question as well and have blogged about some syfi and reality that relates to this “3.0 “aspect.  Its interesting that we give the internet these linear terms of 2.0 and 3.0 because these advancements happen in such a sporadic and unnoticeable way.  We have, in my opinion, surpassed 2.0 and are more like 2.5 or even further on.  According to wikipedia’s definition of of Web 1.0 is considered when WWW. came into effect in 1993.  Web 2.0 started in 2001 with user based sort of sites that allow for every person to share and control information that is seen.  So far many ways of communication through the internet have been developed over and over again.  Many blogging websites are available, paired with social networking sites like my-space and Xanga in the early 2000’s dominated.  Then with the conception of Facebook social networking exploded and became a dominate part of our internet culture.  As we go along all these sites like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Blog spot and so on become more interconnected.  Also Google has a big hand in directing how this all is happening because of the amount of domains Google owns.  This is hard to say weather it is a good thing or bad. here is a link that compiles a list, as of  Feb. 2008, of domains Google has consumed.  Perhaps we are closer to 3.0 than we realize and the revolution of 3.0 will flow seamlessly into our current idea of the internet.
