1. The Journey of the Internet

The journey of the Internet is a ceaseless path of development and astonishing progress. We have witnessed three significant phases: Web 1.0, Web 2.0, and Web 3.0.

Web 1.0 marked the birth of the Internet, where users could only read information on static web pages. The communication was predominantly one-way, and content was displayed using HTML, HTTP, and URLs. Search engines and emails became essential, facilitating easy access to online information.

Web 2.0 was an advancement from Web 1.0, bringing enhanced abilities for sharing, collaboration, and interaction between users and content. XML and RSS technologies allowed for easier information sharing. The use of AJAX and JavaScript improved user interaction. The emergence of social networks, blogs, and wikis enabled users to participate in creating and sharing online content.

Web 3.0 represents a significant leap in making online content smarter and more personalized. RDF, RDFS, and OWL technologies are used to unify information and create personalized experiences. Intelligent data assistants and blockchain have made communication more multi-dimensional and intelligent. AI and Machine Learning applications play a crucial role, improving predictability and offering more personalized user experiences.

Each phase has propelled progress in our lives, from the digital economy, how we interact socially, to how we access information. The linkage between these phases has created an ever-evolving journey of the Internet, compatible with human evolution.
