Web 3.0 to be Guided by Common Sense

Good article in NY Times that discuses the basis for Web 3.0, which according to the writer, will be based on common sense and intelligence. He cites, Flickr and Digg as early examples of the next phase in the evolution of the Internet.
[In] the future, more powerful systems could act as personal advisers in areas as diverse as financial planning, with an intelligent system mapping out a retirement plan for a couple, for instance, or educational consulting, with the Web helping a high school student identify the right college.

The projects aimed at creating Web 3.0 all take advantage of increasingly powerful computers that can quickly and completely scour the Web.

“I call it the World Wide Database,” said Nova Spivack, the founder of a start-up firm whose technology detects relationships between nuggets of information by mining the World Wide Web. “We are going from a Web of connected documents to a Web of connected data.”
