Synopsis of Post Web

Since its beginning, cyberspace has become many things; it is an information network for researchers, a social media hub for teenagers, a game arena for players and an information highway for both brands and users.

Unlike before, we are much more addicted to graphics, data, speed, grids, virtuality and digital experiences. After the 90s, the Web turned into a shared cultural platform. Web 2.0 is all about participation, and as for Web 3.0 it is mostly about spatially hyper-tagged information. Even when we keep in mind how cyberspace began in its early days, it seems obvious that it is building up a completely new geography, a continuous one, inhabited by brand new characters.
