It Is Time For Web 3.0 (And .Mac 3.0 Too)

And what, you may ask, is Web 3.0? Please allow me to list them:

1. Do not store anything on the server, except for things the customers explicitly ask to store on the server. So, a photo sharing web site should store the JPEGs, but not the search log. Put the log on the client machine, and let the client machine make use of the log if necessary to make searchers smarter, for example.

2. Everything that is stored on the server must be encrypted, except for things the customers explicitly ask not to encrypt. The server shouldn't be able to decrypt anything by itself.

Apple, time to leapfrog ahead your competitors with .Mac. We deserve something insanely great, and not a me-too product when compared to the likes of Google, MSN, and Yahoo!

What other essential rules do you have for Web 3.0 / .Mac 3.0? (1.0 is iTools, 2.0 is today.) Send them in to me at, and I'll expand this list with interesting ideas.
