Just read an article about Web 3.0. It describes the development of Web 1.0 to Web 2.0. And it creates a vision of the next step: Web 3.0.
One aspect of this future-web:
[...] that there are no Web sites. Existing Web sites are no longer meant for human eyes. They act as indexes to the information, which is accessible via XML request.
It would be very sad, if everyone only consumes information over XML-feeds using special applications on its personal computer. The information would “lost its soul” if we rip it from its environment – the website.
So many people – especially bloggers – invest so much time in creating these environment. It would be a shame to ignore this. We would step back to 1980 where every site looks similar.
