Web 3.0 (Semantic Web)

Revolution after revolution or revolution in revolution?! When the WWW was invented by Berners-Lee in early 90s it was so called the biggest human evolution after industrial revolution. Later on, by emerging  web 2.0 technologies and social media and different social networks like Facebook, Myspace, Twitter etc. there was a  big argumentation around it that how this evolution has changed human lives. Now it is all about the openness and connectedness of new generation of emerging social web tools which make it difficult for people to select and adopt them in appropriate ways. How one can manage very many different web applications and the information could be retrieved from them and how these huge sources of information could semantically be of help. That's the issue now that web 3.0 or semantic web is all about!
