Web 2.0… what are the degrees of separation? Web 2.0 is cutting out one layer between us and what we want to do, that used to be necessary. Paying for something used to be separate to purchasing it. etc… I see this as reducing the degree of separation.
But cloud computing is really increasing the degrees of separation, only you may never realise you’re playing. If you do, you may find that you (your computer, your data, your information, your self..) is far more widely distributed than you thought.
Geography is not such a loss if we still have the same communities and structures… mostly.
My Web 3.0 bubble idea… how we carry our own personal cloud..? in our bubble. Whether it’s on a SUB STICK or a chip inset… we keep all our personal settings and programs with us wherever we go.
