Please note: the term “Web 3.0″ is the dictionary word “Web” followed by the number “3″, a decimal point and the number “0.” As such, the term itself cannot and should not have any commercial significance in any context.

How it All Started …

The first use of the term Web 3.0 in conjunction with the Semantic Web that reached hundreds of thousands of people (according to Alexa.com) was made in the Wikipedia 3.0: The End of Google? article, which was published here on Evolving Trends at 5:20am EST, June 26, ‘06.

Here’s how one fellow blogger who had written about it on June 28 described it:

[…] But there it is. That was then. Now, it seems, the rage is Web 3.0. It all started
with this article here addressing the Semantic Web, the idea that a new organizational
structure for the web ought to be based on concepts that can be interpreted. The idea is
to help computers become learning machines, not just pattern matchers and calculators. […]

Another blogger wrote on June 28 (in his “Other Links” section):

“This is the first non-sarcastic reference to Web 3.0 I’ve seen in the wild”

Alexa graph

According to Alexa the Wikipedia 3.0 article reached 650 out of each 1,000,000 people. Based on an estimated number of 1,000,000,000 Web users, this means that it reached 650,000 people. This includes people who read the article at about 6,000 sites (according to MSN) that had linked to Evolving Trends. It does not include all the people who have read the article since then.
