Bill Joy's Six Webs
 / 

In a lecture at MIT, Bill Joy explains that there’s not just one web:

[…] the “far” web, as defined by the typical TV viewer experience; the “near” web, or desktop computing; the “here” web, or mobile devices with personal information one carried all the time; the “weird” web, characterized by voice recognition systems; the “B2B” web of business computers dealing exclusively with each other; and the “D2D” web, of intelligent buildings and cities.

So rad it hurts. I love the image of the B2B web chugging along, all those servers just wrapped up in their weird silent conversations…

(It’s Omtastic.)

Thanks for posting this, Robin. I’m about halfway through it, and it’s a very helpful tool to think about the way we use the internet. If it gets into wider circulation among people who produce for the various near, far, and here webs, so much the better.
