Gilbane Advisor 1-5-22 — Web3, SCWP, CDPs, Meta, Office

This week we have content from Tim O’Reilly, Jay Graber. News comes from Limelight, Optimizely, Syncro Soft, and iTranslate.


Opinion / Analysis

Whoa, is there a lot discussion around “Web 3.0”, “Web3”, whatever. It’s all fun, interesting, and necessary, but a little early for convincing predictions. There is no official definition of either term just as there was no official definition or product plan for Web 2.0. As then, there are a lot of ideas, aspirations, and new technologies being developed and in use — and even more questions. There is plenty to read and lots to recommend. Below are two you should include in your reading list.

Why it’s too early to get excited about Web3

Tim O’Reilly, who started a conference that popularized “Web 2.0” in 2004, provides broader, historical, and current context, as well as an even-handed look at the roles of decentralization and crypto. He makes a compelling case for his title.

Web3 is self-certifying

There’s been a lot of discussion lately about what Web3 is and isn’t. Here’s my definition: Web3 is user-generated authority, enabled by self-certifying web protocols. These are a superset of technologies that include blockchains, but are not limited to them. Is this what other people think “Web3” is? Maybe not, but hear me out.

Jay Graber has a must read take. Note Graber is leading Twitter’s Bluesky project.
