What is Web 3.0?

The New York Times has an interesting article describing it as the semantic web, where all the connected data has meaning. It will gather all the user reviews, rankings, blogs, etc to answer such questions as: "I'm looking for a warm place to vacation and I have a budget of $3,000. Oh, and I have 4 young kids."

Transumers: I Want Change

Transumers are consumers who always want something new and get tired of seeing the same thing all the time. They want to change the look of something. Take for example rental gardens, which will change out your garden accessories, like plants and planters, every few months. Watch out for this growing trend to be extended to other areas.

Like Talking to Strangers?

It's common to start a conversation with a stranger at a bus stop, or while waiting in line at an amusement park. Now you can strike up a conversation with anyone on the same website you are browsing. It could be any website, so long as you both are currently there. That means you already share something in common: the fact you are visiting the website at the same time. So you must share some kind of similar interests. I bet it would be easy to strike up a conversation under the circumstances. You may be able to mutually help each other in some manner.

Best Shopping Help Ever

Here's the scene. I am at a mall and I see some shoes I like but the price is too high. I pull out my camera phone and upload a picture of the shoes to, along with my current GPS location or zip code. In response I get a localized list of merchants who carry similar shoes, even their current prices. Some are even at the same mall I'm at. Now I know exactly where to shop at next.

I personally have a real need for this because this often happens to me while shopping. I hate wasting my time trying to find a similar product in another store. This new service presently only works online, not over a phone. But just wait a moment; it's coming.

What's Happening on eBay?
