I’m finally back! After a good amount of time cuddling on the couch with my family, my website is finally live again, albeit under construction. Step by step I am finding more things to fix and improve. If you see anything on the website that you think I could improve, don’t hesitate to head to the contact page to let me know! Now, for my first time back, I want to write about something entirely new to Svea’s Diary. After all, the website started out as my diary, so I am enjoying the privilege of writing about whatever interests me at the moment…
Since last year November, I have thrown myself down the deep end of the web 3.0 revolution. I have found the community behind so many new companies very exciting. Due to the nature of DAO’s and general decentralization, there is a strong community feeling. We’re all in this together and that’s something that has been a challenge in Social Media. With big companies influencing precisely what we get to see on our timeline, our entire lives are influenced and directed by the 1%. If you don’t know what I’m talking about here, please watch “The Social Dilemma” on Netflix. It explains how all the data collected on us influences everything we see on our social feeds in return and how our not-so-private data is sold.
This brings me to the first big step for many, and that is to start with that which they don’t understand. Realistically, everyone starts out in the world not understanding anything. We learn by reading, experiencing and doing. It’s not different at all when it comes to the Web 3.0 revolution. Once you learn what the main terms stand for, everything starts to make more sense. So let’s start with that term, web 3.0. What is web 3.0?
Web3.0 is the newest phase of the internet. But what does that mean exactly?
Web 1.0 is what we started out with. It was mostly static pages on the internet, not much interaction, the dawn of the internet age. Really, web 1.0 focused on giving us information flat out, a one-way street if you will. Soon that turned into a two-way street, introducing web 2.0. Web 2.0 is what we all know and use now, Facebook, Instagram, and so much more, even this very website is Web 2.0. Because it is a two-way street, that comes with its own issues. As mentioned above, the big issue is privacy and the selling of data, our data, but I could go on about the issues with Web 2.0. Luckily, all those issues are exactly what Web 3.0 is aiming to solve. Nothing is perfect and I am sure we will find more ways to improve but because of decentralization, our data will be in our own hands. The newest web 3.0 companies are all finding ways to improve a certain industry by taking it out of the hands of the 1% and giving control back to the community. As you can imagine this will provide an endless amount of use-cases for web 3.0, and they’re only emerging now. I for one am excited to see what the future of web 3.0 has in store for us!
To some of you, this may still seem very vague. I hope that I can write more articles to get into the details of everything about Web 3.0. For now, I hope that you understand a little more about what is going on in tech, a world where not enough women are present yet, let’s change that! To keep the community strong and equal it’s crucial everyone who is capable starts participating, no matter their gender, sexuality or race. Don’t be afraid to dive into a new adventure. I lived in fear for quite a while and am so happy I broke that cycle! Until next time!
