Web 4.0


What’s Web 4.0? I don’t know, but I’m declaring it’s coming soon:-)
David Hornik talks about Social Networks 3.0, Phil Wainewright and others about Web 3.0 – I had to jump on the trend before becoming obsolete:-) Web 2.0 is so passe…

But back to 2.0 for a moment: we’re moving off the desktop onto the Web. We now have Writely, Meebo, Backpack, Goowy, Zimbra, Zvents, Zoozio , Eskobo… we may have Google Calendar soon.

AJAX Office everywhere. Some of these products/companies grew out of nowhere in 5–6 months. Which reminds me: where’s Chandler, years in the making?

Update (12/06) : Mitch Kapor just answered the “where is Chandler?” question. On second thought.. did he?
