What's Next: Some ideas

Quick thoughts before the weekend about what's next. After a web services foundation is in place, what do you set out to do with it? What metaphors guide your vision?

  • The structured and the semi-structured are merged.
  • Everyone is able to fully participate.
  • How one participates gradually evolves and influences others.
  • Trust is associated with information and services.
  • Trust evolves.

One metaphor is formulating: Conversations. Maybe in one sense something like Conversation for Action.

Another question, what current systems and applications most closely embody these thoughts, or your own thoughts about what's next?
