Web 3.0

The future is going to be amazing. We've already got computers everywhere, all networked together to share information. But most of them are stationary. With handheld browsing devices like the iPhone, a whole new world will open up.

Take this for example. You're talking to your friend, and he mentions something you're not familiar with. 20 years ago, you'd have to ask someone or go to the library. A couple years ago, you could look it up online, but you had to find a terminal. Now, if you've got handheld Internet, you can immediately look up anything you don't already know.

The speed of information transfer will increase dramatically, because the ease of use and on-demand nature of handheld browsing will eliminate the wait between becoming curious about an idea and learning more. Things will continue to happen faster and faster, and we as a society will move our definition of "progress" closer and closer to the speed of thought.
