"Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey recently announced his vision for a new decentralized web platform that is being called Web 5.O and is being built, with an aim to return ownership of data and identity to individuals."
The deadliest web with an extra decentralized structure where individuals have control over their data and identity. Before introducing the new buzzword WEB 5.O, let’s have a quick explanation of Web 1.O, Web 2.O and Web 3.O.
The World Wide Web, which is the foundation of Web 1.0, was invented by British computer scientist Sir Tim Berners-Lee in 1989 while working at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. The first HTML website was launched in 1991.
The web is evolving too smartly.
Web 1.0 emerged in the mid-1990s as the first generation of the World Wide Web. "Web 1.0 was read-only internet because it consisted of static pages that did not enable interaction."
Mostly composed of basic text and graphics.
Web 1.0 websites were mainly designed for one-way communication, with the content being delivered from the website to the user, and there was limited interactivity and no user-generated content.
Web 2.0 refers to the second generation of the World Wide Web, which emerged in the early 2000s. It represents a shift towards more dynamic, interactive, and user-centric websites and applications. Mainly designed for two-way communication.
Characterized by user-generated content, social networking, collaboration, rich user experiences, web applications, openness, interoperability, personalization, and mobile support.
The term "Web 2.0" was first coined by Dale Dougherty of O'Reilly Media in 2004, and was later popularized by Tim O'Reilly and John Battelle.
While there is no specific person or organization that can be credited with inventing Web 2.0, it is generally considered to be a collaborative effort by developers, designers, and entrepreneurs who sought to improve the functionality and usability of the World Wide Web.
Some of the key players in the development of Web 2.0 include companies like Google, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
Web 3.0 is a term that is still evolving and has different meanings to different people.
We can dig deeper. Let’s move to Web 4.O and Web 5.O.
People says, Web 4.O is an intelligent web but Web 5.O will be a telepathic web. Web 5.O is sort of a subsequent addition to what Web 3.O was already offering.
Imagine, if your account would be banned, your digital identity would be vanished. Then from where you can access your information?
You won’t be able to take that out. Web 5.O is being evolved to bit this issue. No control over individual’s data. It is giving you an option of creating an identity which is with you. It is going to be stored in your personal location.
You will be able to move your specific identity from one platform to the other platform and all the data associated with that particular platform can be transferred to the other platform. In a nutshell, you can use the services seamlessly.
The evolution of the World Wide Web has been nothing short of remarkable. From its humble beginnings as a way for researchers to share information, to its current state as an all-encompassing network of information, communication, and commerce, the web has transformed the way we live our lives.
From the static web to intelligent web, it created new opportunities for education, business, and social interaction, and has brought people together from all corners of the globe.
As we continue to push the boundaries of what is possible on the web, it is clear that its evolution is far from over. With the constant innovation and development of new technologies, the future of the World Wide Web is an exciting and promising one. It is evolving.
