Web 3.0 – Discussion #1 – "OMG, I Never Thought of That!"

I wrote the 1st post “Web 3.0 – A Post Intended to “Define” & “Design”, here on Geek Estate Blog, because I felt it was the best venue to begin an open discussion on a difficult, Technology related, topic and here I am with my 1st follow up post resulting from the very 1st comment I received on my original post on my personal Blog instead. Not that the comments here on GEB weren’t great, because they clearly were, and I am so “Geeked” to follow up on them as well. In fact, they inspired a “Round Table” style discussion that will take place on Blog Talk Radio on Tuesday Nov 24th at 10am PST, so hold on to your hats, because with the infamous Phoenix Real Estate Guy Jay Thompson, Tyler Hurst, and Zane Burnett of HouseofZane.com as my fellow panelists & Moderated by Steven Groves, I know this is gonna be the “Springboard” I had envisioned, when I came up with this crazy idea!!!

But, I digress, back to my point. I received this comment from Judi Nield, shortly after my original Blog…

Yes! Yes! YES!! Brilliant! Your comments remind me of the movie Eagle Eye – an amazing futuristic flic about how a hub source, a technology called “The Eagle Eye” uses data from cell phones, internet, media sites, traffic cameras, etc to compile endless amounts of data for everyone in the world… and uses that data to then control the world.

Though the movie is quite a sensationalized concept, I sincerely think there is significant truth to your Web 3.0 theory.”

OMG! I thought, think about how true this really is??? For decades, Hollywood has given us a secret “Glimpse into our future” and here are just a few examples…

From a post on TotalFilm.com that I found entertaining, as well as fascinating…

Future-seeing movies aren’t always accurate (T2? Judgement Day? 1997? No). But, thanks to the joy of hindsight, we can celebrate the stories where sci-fi became sci-reality…
The Film: Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind (2004)

What It Predicted:A memory-washing procedure – created by Dr Mierzwiak (Tom Wilkinson) and offered by Lacuna, Inc. and now…”Dutch ‘boffins’ have discovered that a common heart medicine might help people suffering from traumatic memories by erasing them from their heads – just like from out of Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind.”

The Film: The Truman Show (1998)

What It Predicted:
Reality TV was in its infancy when Andrew Niccol posited the idea that we could watch someone live out the mundanities of their life on television.

The Film: Blade Runner (1982)

What It Predicted: A smog-covered, sprawling future-LA cityscape dominated by giant, animated billboards.

The Film: Videodrome (1983)

What It Predicted:A sort of merging of the corporeal world with the hyperreality of video and television – by way of user-generated material. That, we think you’ll find, equals YouTube!

The Film: Soylent Green (1973)

What It Predicted: A world choked with pollution and overpopulation that’s led to energy wars and meteorological chaos…Uhmmm, GLOBAL WARMING?

The Film: Short Circuit (1986)

What It Predicted: War-bots that can think for themselves on the battlefield.

The Film: Forbidden Planet (1956)

What It Predicted: The crew of United Planets Cruiser C-57D all came equipped with tiny communicators and cameras on their belt buckles…Can you say iPhone or Blackberry?

The Film: The Hitch-Hiker’s Guide To The Galaxy (2005)

What It Predicted: This! The Internet. A user-generated, ever-evolving font of knowledge. AHA!!! Web 3.0!???? Hmmmmmmmmm

Get on board you guys! Let’s talk about this. Make a comment, that may lead to my next post. Make a comment that may lead to the next great Technological breakthrough. Make a comment that says I am an Idiot! I don’t care, JUST MAKE A COMMENT! …

and don’t forget to tune in to the panel show on Blog Talk Radio Tuesday Nov 24th PST and help us take the next step in “Designing & Defining” Web 3.0…

  • This is an interesting idea. Those are all great movies that project the future. What about all the flops though? All the movies like “Escape from LA” where LA is broken off from the rest of the US and secret soldiers have to get objects for a corrupt president.

    • therecoach

      Great point Legal, but hmmmm secret soldiers…corrupt president??? I'll give ya the part about California breaking off from the mainland as “far fetched”, but those 2 sound pretty plausable! 🙂

      • daver

        Yes, but that president lost the last election.

  • ….aaaaand the match is ON!

    Eric enters the ring and, owww, theres a serious half-nelson thrown on Tyler Hurst and he smacks Jay Thompson to the back of the head while kneeing Zane Burnett.

    Who's got the next hold, who's ready to enter the ring…

    Eric, I am really looking forward to the show on Tuesday and thanks for sowing the seed of the idea.

  • mrspeeb

    Didn't Cheech & Chong predict medical marijuana use?

    • therecoach

      Why yes, yes they did MrSpeeb! and I believe they also correctly predicted “Dave's not here” as well! Thanks for the comment, any theories of your own???

  • Man, just when I start getting a few visionary realtors to admit that there MIGHT be a Web 2.0, you spring this stuff on me.

    • therecoach

      You said “A Mouth Full” Joe, but my take is…”It's better to be in the game, than on the sidelines”. Do you have any visions of what Web 3.0 will look like? or desires, for that matter?

      • therecoach, I totally agree that is better to be in the game. I think Web 2.0 has demanded a big shift for Realtors, many of whom seem to lack the desire to make the necessary cultural commitment.
        RE: Web 3.0, I am learning everything I can (or should i say everything I can understand) about VRM – Vendor relationship management. In the Web 3.0 world the customer will be even more empowered and it will be harder to tell the customers from the vendors, as everyone will be immersed in the “conversation” on equal ground.

        • therecoach

          VRM!!! Now you are “Getting in the Game”! That's a great, “practical” application to a somewhat retorical question. That is what I was hoping for! Joe you need to tune into today's Blog Talk Radio discussion on this, seriously. Click on link to participate with some input…http://www.blogtalkradio.com/stevengroves/2009/11/24/the-great-web30-smackdown

          • Got to hear most of the blogtalkradio program. Thanks for the heads up on that.

          • therecoach

            I thought it went great! How about you? I will get some good content for the next few posts from the audio and the chat discussion of today's broadcast. Thanks for tuning in 🙂

  • I've posted this comment during email discussion, so thought I should share the same here as well:

    Now, you have many devices at home and giving subscription to many companies. e.g. for TV, for cellphone, and for internet you are paying 3 separate companies. But, I believe Web 3.0 will not be like that. It will be portable and you can use any device, even in McDonalds to access your subscribed internet service.

    Moreover, all the devices will converge into one. Yes, the age of television will vanish. And text-based webpages we see today will be very very primitive. Relatime High Definition Video will rule Web 3.0.

    • therecoach

      I love your “Positive”, even “Optimistic” view of Web 3.0 Asif!

    Thanks for starting this discussion on Disqus. I’ve been using the WordPress in-house comments feature and I’ve been pretty happy with it. Although I’ve been considering the move to Disqus after a friend recommended it.
