Internet pioneer and publisher Tim O´Reilly, who invented the term ´Web 2.0´, has praised the Wii as anticipating the next big paradigm shift in computing, often referred to as ´Web 3.0´.
The interview was conducted for 3sat neues, the German technology show I now work for. I asked O´Reilly at last week´s Web 2.0 Expo in Berlin about what he thought ´Web 3.0´ might be. The relevant quote is 20:45 minutes into the interview.
It´s going to be about a new relationship with the physical world. And we already see it with, for example, the gestural interface on the iPhone. We see it with the Nintendo Wii gestural controller. Where we are interacting physically, you know, rather than typing on a keyboard.
