Lab Exercise for Week 11

Web 1.0 was released in 1991 primarily gave information to the user which was not very interactive. Web 1.0 included the invention of WWW. I remember getting our first family computer in 1994 that was setup to be able to connect to the internet using Netscape which was limited to what a user was able to do via the internet. In 1998, I convinced my mom to switch to AOL which was one of the greatest things from the late 1990s.

Web 2.0 changed the internet significantly. In late 2004, it took the internet to a whole new level. With Web 2.0 we are now able to blog and share ideas through text, audio, and video. Web 2.0 also allowed the creation of social media sites such as Facebook and Flickr. These websites have made it easier for users to share their thoughts and ideas with one another.

Web 3.0 is the newest technology of the internet and a continuation of Web 2.0. The content is generated by machines instead of humans. It has allowed things to be recommended to us from one site to another. For instance, if you do a Google search for something and then a few days later you are recommended to like something on Facebook that is related to what you recently searched for on Google. Web 3.0 is also driven by mobile technology such as 4G and cloud computing. Web 3.0 has changed the way we view the internet on a daily basis.
