Web 3.0: The Next 5000 Days

"Web 3.0" Kevin Kelly, Wired Magazine

Web 3.0 is the next evolutionary step of the internet and is defined by people in the industry who visualize what the internet will be like in the next 10 years. It is estimated that Web 2.0 will run until 2010, so Web 3.0 will be from 2010-2020. The visions of industry experts vary on what they think Web 3.0 will bring, but a general picture emerges with the following characteristics:

  1. Personalized internet experience
  2. Search engines will capture user profiles and understand the context of your search words thus providing personalized search results
  3. These personalized experiences will be gotten through small, fast, highly customizable applications that are pieced together and run on any device (PC or mobile device) with distribution through social networks (no store purchase) and data being stored in the cloud.
  4. More “data” will be stored in the “cloud” (online) that will act as a master database and be the foundation of your personalized experiences online. Web 3.0 applications will draw and add to this database.
  5. The digital and atom world will start to converge

One simple description of Web 3.0 stated: “Really, it’s just Web 2.0 with a brain. The revolution is about data, and making it all smarter. What’s going to be different about Web 3.0 is that it’ll be the intelligent web.” -Kevin Kelly, Wired Magazine

Now open your mind and watch Kevin Kelly of Wired Magazine present his vision of Web 3.0 and what the next 5000 days will bring. The video is about 42 minutes. His presentation is only 23 minutes and the rest is a Q&A session.

Mahalo Clinton for posting. I found the concept of Web 3.0 to be very interesting and am excited to see what the Web will look like in another 5000 days. It is evident everything drills down to data, right up your alley Clinton :) I have to admit, it is a little scary to know that so much of my personal data could potentially be floating out in cyberspace and accessible by others anytime.

The one thing I can't wait for is the consolidation of Web 2.0 applications to have 1 login. Always good to spend some time to listen to thoughts about the future.

Interesting video Clinton. The speaker had interesting insight into the industry. I'll be exciting to see what web 3.0 actually looks like & how close his projections are. I have to agree with Dorothy in that what he said about consolidating information & linking everyone's data is scary although, it could also allow for more accountability in your actions. Talk about "Big Brother".

I also liked the term Network Effects that he used & his analogy to the fax machine. It got me thinking about Distance Learning & if that we need a stronger "Network Effect" to build capacity in our programs. It's just a matter of convincing... but how? :)

Looking forward to seeing what web 3.0 has instore. I better get cracking with web 2.0 before I get left too far behind. ;)

E pule kakou . . .

Aloha all,
I was trying to think so hard of a "techie" tip and finally gave up. I even googled "tips and tricks" for various programs and then thought "I can't blog about something I don't actually use!" Then, as I was sitting in my Papa Makua class, doing all kinds of protocal and thought about how we keep looking for a short pule to do to open our meetings. I had `A`ali`i write a pule in Hawaiian. He was worried about the grammar and structure of it so I asked Kelly C. to kökua by editing and doing an audio recording so you can hear the pronunciation. Hope it's helpful :)

E ho`omalu käkou
E kö mäkou makua i loko o ka lani
Mahalo no nä pömaika`i a pau. Mahalo no ke ali`i lokomaika`i o Pauahi a me këia kula nei. E `olu`olu, e kia`i iä mäkou i ke alahele küpono me ka lökahi.
Ke nonoi ha`aha`a nei mäkou i ka inoa o Iesu Cristo

`Unuhi (translation):
Let us pray
Our Father in heaven
Thank you for all the many blessings. Thank you for the generous Pri…

Papa Kuʻi ʻai a me Pohaku

As part of our huakaʻi last month to Papahana Kuaola and the opportunity to work in the loʻi, I wanted to continue that thought by sharing my experience of making a papa kuʻi 'ai (poi-pounding board).

In 2008 with the encouragement from me and my co-worker, Pili Wong, Earl Kawaʻa offered to teach a papa kuʻi ʻai papa to those of us that were interested in learning what our kūpuna did as a daily way of life. For our kūpuna they had loʻi in their yards and grew their own kalo, the major source of starch in their diet. They steamed it and pounded poi or kept it whole and sliced it and ate it like bread with butter or condensed milk.

Kawaʻa was very specific on our kuleana and the commitment he required of us. Our first task was to find an au koʻi (handle) for our koʻi (adze tool). I found myself suddenly looking up at every tree I saw looking for the right branch for my koʻi. My husband found mine at a jobsite from a Haole Koa tree otherwise known as the Leucaena Leucocephala tree. I…

Highlights from the Adobe Photoshop SkillPath Seminar

Last week, Jenny Tanaka and I attended an Adobe Photoshop seminar in Waikiki at the DoubleTree hotel.

A  few major benefits of attending seminars like this include the following: seeing what is possible in the program, becoming better equipped to do research into Photoshop's features, and watching a "Photoshop guru" put some tricks into action.

In reviewing the highlights of the seminar, this post will focus on 3 things having to do with beginner-level use of Photoshop:
I.  ShortcutsII.  TricksIII.  Applications

I. Shortcuts 
One of the wonderful (albeit daunting) things about Photoshop is that there are multiple ways to do just about anything that needs doing. This can be pretty intimidating for a beginner, so it is good to start learning keyboard shortcuts if you want to start learning Photoshop. The early part of the conference went over a few of the shortcuts that our lecturers would be using throughout the day.

Basically, we were given a very small taste of the many, …
