Spinning Down the Web Squared

Posted by Sravan | August 14, 2009 .

Tim O’Reilly and John Battelle released a white paper called Web Squared: Web 2.0 Five Years On as a warm up before the Web 2.0 Summit which is to take place in October. The paper is a must read for all web savvy, and all those who care about the directions in which the world is going, the directions in which the web is driving the world.

Covering many real world technological challenges of today from augmented reality to speech recognition and generation, it explains a lot of things that are already happening in the web world and introduces us to a lot more that I never heard about.

You can watch the hour-long presentation video below which covers the gist of the white paper, but I recommend reading those 15 pages.

Never before have our lives been this dependent on the web, on each other. Social graph is a new concept I have learnt today, and the debates about dehumanization, privacy and copyright, identity are taking a new level.

P.S. Microsoft is far from losing its relevance with projects like Clearflow, Natal, Photosynth.
