Web 4.0

For week 6 of BCM206, we discussed the attention economy and the evolution of the web.

Web 2.0 describes the evolution of the internet in the early 2000s many of elements evolved. This iteration was coined the ‘read-write‘ web and saw many users become creators. In recent years, we have entered the Web 3.0 where websites are learning and becoming more intelligent through algorithms.

This had me thinking what Web 4.0 could look like. With technology constantly advancing and our immersion into technology becoming deeper and deeper, I think the Web 4.0 will see us interacting with this websites and AI on a virtual reality scale. This then had me wondering what advertisements in this virtual reality internet would look like. Would the ads be like a Truman show kind of deal? Or would they be more intrusive pop up ads? Could we even pay for a premium version of the internet that is ad-free. Would ad-blockers still exist here?

I don’t have the answers to any of these questions, but I’d love to hear if you had any more ideas about what the Web 4.0 could be.

Frank Tremain.

    Hey Frank! Great job on this weeks blog post, I think the angle which you decided to write about definitely made this post more appealing and interesting to read. The fact that you mentioned the web 4.0 and what it could look like really got me thinking and imagining about what it could look like. Like you did state technology is forever advancing to new extents. It was also really refreshing to see you write through your own thoughts and perspectives of what you think web 4.0 could look like, and it also allowed me to develop an understanding of the points which you are stating.
