It all started at the European Particle Physics Laboratory (CERN) in 1989, when one of the scientists – Tim Berners-Lee – wanted technology to start helping people to cooperate and share knowledge. He rolled up his sleeves and laid the foundations of today’s network. He provided tools to create simple hypertext documents.
The first pages consisted mainly of text interlaced with links. Here and there he appeared in the picture. According to today’s standards, the appearance of such pages was far from being aesthetic.
Such documents can definitely be thrown into a drawer with a “Web 1.0” label. They were mainly characterized by one-way interaction with the visitor – it means that it was only possible to view the content. The user had no influence on its appearance, behaviour – he could not interact with it. The content was static. The technology playing the main role was HTML.
Such trends are still present on the market, although solutions have been developed that make us slightly stepping on the ground of Web 3.0. For some time, “web creations” have ceased to be documents, pages and have become applications. In the context of Web 3.0 everything seems to be an application. It is in such applications that we experience the richness of artificial intelligence, semantic networks, meta data and context recognition. The assumption is that this computer knows better than you do what you want. Examples of such an approach can be online shops, which tell us what our friends have bought, or present somehow related products. Social networking sites, indicating people we may know, behave in a similar way.
It is certain that now we can only taste the third version of the web, but I am sure it will bring even more interesting things. Looking at the development of the Internet, where in a relatively short period of time we moved from exchanging simple documents to mass viewing of cats’ photos, challenging each other, playing, writing, listening and many other activities, we can only speculate at this point what incredible things will provide us with even higher level of technology. However, we can take for granted the fact that it is worth getting to know and tame the powerful tools that we will create – and we in Akanza will take care of it.
