Should you wait for Web 3.0?

The whole ad-supported mania is starting to leave a bad taste in people's mouths, and it is resulting in a wave of fads and fallacies, which may be appealing temporarily, but have little long term value in term of providing users what they truly need, because the quick hits always play into whims and wishes, not fundamental or well-understood needs. Plus security and privacy suffer, and people are getting fed up with that also. As always convenience wins out over security, which is still an after thought in most designs. Increasingly services are forgetting to provide convenient ways to interface with them for travellers or others who may either temporarily or permanently have to cope with bandwidth limitations. And social networks become clubs for the bandwidth rich. All those pictures aren't really that relevant!

Time for a change.
