Web 3.0 = social computing

Web 2.0 is the building of the Interstate Highway System in the 1950s; Social Computing is everything that resulted next


The web is approaching an author:user ratio of 1:1 = web 3.0 = social computing.  The read/write web.  Social computing requires information literacy, not just the library-help-me-with-my-term-paper information literacy, but 'Social Information Literacy.'

Social information literacy means knowing how to 'do stuff' in your everyday life, interacting with others through the information commons: uploading pictures, sending hyperlinks, email, IM, ..

And how about day-to-day information literacy, or personal technology literacy, which includes things like: where to find that file you just downloaded, how to transfer mp3s to your player, how to back up your 'Money' file.  Personal information technology literacy?
