"My personal view is that a lot of it is coming together now. That is very gratifying to see ... I'm very optimistic at this moment," Berners-Lee said in a telephone interview ahead of the annual World Wide Web conference, which opens in Edinburgh on Monday.

"The whole industrial environment is more exciting. We had the bubble and the burst, but now you see a low of young companies again. There's renewed enthusiasm among VCs (venture capitalists) to invest in start-ups. I get a feeling of upsurge in activity."

The biggest jump right now is in dynamic content being added, making the web a much more interactive place to work and play. As the world gets more "customized," the tools, like AJAX development, will become even more important as people again try to make their mark and customize their space. I feel that MySpace and others are only a taste of what's to come. Exciting!...

MySpace is a good example of how websites have developed over the years. I see the "big leap" as a move away from websites-as-islands to a much greater interaction between sites sharing data sources, adding interactivity, user content, and pulling in third-party content via RSS and syndication.

Sir Tim's vision is based around the "Semantic Web", where data and documents on the web can interact and express meaning, and where the end user can use, adapt and modify the available data. HTML remains a part of the equation, but RSS, RDF and new data query languages and formats such as the recent W3C SPARQL [w3.org] candidate recommendation are going to bring the web to a whole new level.

Simple, static websites still have their place, but the big players will be those which implement "Web 2.0" ideas of sharing and developing information and interactivity.

In other news, Al Gore invented "Web 2.0" in 2002.
