When it will actually arrive is anybody’s guess. So what will it be? No one seems to be entirely sure, but the vision seems to be something vastly more interactive than we have now:
Virtual world: Others also speculate whether web 3.0 will eventually develop into a virtual world. Writing in About.com, Daniel Nations explains that it’s a possibility that Web users would eventually be able to walk into virtual buildings and stores online.
That would be interesting. Hopefully the predictions about more relevant searching will be right. Who needs a bazillion marginally related hits from Google? A quick search for ‘antique tarot cards’ brought up 579,000 hits in 0.23 seconds.

Ugh. Hmm… getting an idea for story here…
