EU commission takes the lead on Web 3.0

When I spoke at the European Parliament, I mentioned that mobile could be a big opportunity for the EU to take a globally competitive position – and hence it is nice to see this initiative from the EU Commission consults on how to put Europe into the lead of the transition to Web 3.0

I love especially the emphasis on mobile and the universal connectivity .. This is truly the next step beyond Web 2.0 and I am glad it is happening here .. and with a chance that we could fulfill this vision

“The Internet of the future will radically change our society,” said Viviane Reding, Commissioner for Information Society and Media. “Web 3.0 means seamless ‘anytime, anywhere’ business, entertainment and social networking over fast reliable and secure networks. It means the end of the divide between mobile and fixed lines. It signals a tenfold quantum leap in the scale of the digital universe by 2015. Europe has the know-how and the network capacity to lead this transformation. We must make sure that Web 3.0 is made and used in Europe.”


  1. I loved the Futuretext book Digital Korea and wish for connectivity like that in Europe. In the mean time I pay around £20 per month for broadband delivered through old copper wires, we really are in the digital bronze age.

  2. Amen!
