If you've been considering hiring a personal assistant, you may want to hold off until Web 3.0 becomes a reality. Some Internet experts say that this powerful browser will turn computers into intuitive assistants.
Some Internet experts believe the next generation of the Web -- Web 3.0 -- will make tasks like your search for movies and food faster and easier. Instead of multiple searches, you might type a complex sentence or two in your Web 3.0 browser, and the Web will do the rest.
What do you guys think?
Those idealists speak of a day when a woman will tell her computer she wants a spreadsheet program that can track packages and order office supplies. Then a type of software program called an intelligent agent will scour the Net for three Web services: a spreadsheet, a package tracker, and an office-supply purchaser. In seconds, another program will assemble the services into one application that the woman can use through her browser. Yet another program will bill her credit card for use of the Web services.
Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer first pitched the Web-service concept to developers at a conference in 1999. "Programming for the Web will give developers an almost infinite array of building blocks to enhance or combine in any fashion to create exciting new solutions," he said. Since then, Microsoft has tempered its Web-service ambitions from the infinite to the global. "Everything in the world will be in Web services," chairman Bill Gates told BusinessWeek magazine last November.

And how often have "internet experts" been right in the past?
I have been watching it ever since DOS 1.0 days (I guess that dates me..), and have seen it take twists and turns that nobody could have predicted.
