Web 3.whatever

2006-11-14 15:42:35.576773+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

Now that the whole Bubble Web 2.0 thing is playing itself out, the question is: "What's next?". I think we can look to Microsoft for leadership in our naming problems. Nearly a decade ago, they leaped from Windows 3.1 to Windows For Workgroups (ie: 3.11) to Windows 95. So I'm thinking "Web 07" is next up ("Web 007", while equally correct, won't work because of the obvious legal issues). Three years later, with the change in the decade, we can have "Web DE" ("Decade Edition"), and thereafter it becomes a little fuzzier.

Because version numbers are so 2.0.

We are using the 'Star Trek' naming convention: I'm working in Next Generation Learning Management and Course Delivery systems for Next Knowledge.. Our new flagship product was named by me: NextLMS....

Our next products might be: Deep Learning 9.0, and of course: Educational Voyager.
