Web 3.0 by Google’s Eric Schmidt

Eric Schmidt provides a definition of Web 3.0: widget-style applications which can run both on you computer and your mobile devices and will be distributed virally through social networking sites or email. This seems inline with the direction Apple is going with dashboard and widgets. I think that for widgets to become really interesting, someone needs to address the problem of portable identity and widgets have to be able to go beyond fragmented little boxes. It will be interesting to see if OpenID and Microformats can take us there.
