Richard MacManus at Read/WriteWeb is very enthousiastic about the definition of Web 3.0 by Google’s CEO Eric Schmidt. Although I agree with Schmidt that Web 2.0 is more of a marketing term than anything else, there is a key difference between where the Web is now and where it might be going. And in my opinion, that is not the difference that Schmidt talks about. The difference is a concept by the inventor of Web 1.0, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, and is called the semantic web:

“The semantic web is an evolving extension of the World Wide Web in which web content can be expressed not only in natural language, but also in a format that can be read and used by software agents, thus permitting them to find, share and integrate information more easily.”
