Here we would like to talk about the major differences among Web 1.0, Web 2.0 and Web 3.0. To help you better understand, please watch this Youtube video, “Evolution Web 1.0, Web 2.0 to Web 3.0”.
It is the “readable” phrase of the World Wide Web with flat data. In Web 1.0, there is only limited interaction between sites and web users. Web 1.0 is simply an information portal where users passively receive information without being given the opportunity to post reviews, comments, and feedback.
It is the “writable” phrase of the World Wide Web with interactive data. Unlike Web 1.0, Web 2.0 facilitates interaction between web users and sites, so it allows users to interact more freely with each other. Web 2.0 encourages participation, collaboration, and information sharing. Examples of Web 2.0 applications are Youtube, Wiki, Flickr, Facebook, and so on.
It is the “executable” phrase of Word Wide Web with dynamic applications, interactive services, and “machine-to-machine” interaction. Web 3.0 is a semantic web which refers to the future. In Web 3.0, computers can interpret information like humans and intelligently generate and distribute useful content tailored to the needs of users. One example of Web 3.0 is Tivo, a digital video recorder. Its recording program can search the web and read what it finds to you based on your preferences.
Check out how Canada Goose’s goodwill was built through grassroots marketing and a bit of old-fashioned made-in-Canada style envy. Proud Canadians!
Under the stewardship of chief executive Dani Reiss since 2001, Toronto-based Canada Goose Inc. has grown close to 4,000% and become the country’s premier brand of outerwear. Mr. Reiss, whose grandfather, Sam Tick, founded the company in 1957, talked with the Financial Post‘s Hollie Shaw about how the brand goodwill was built through grassroots marketing and a bit of old-fashioned made-in-Canada style envy.
QHow did you take the Canada Goose brand to where it is today?
A When I started here our factory produced all kinds of stuff [and] we decided to focus on the Canada Goose [outerwear] part of the business and growing it around the world. When I got involved the product was worn by people who lived and worked in the coldest places on Earth, and that is still the case. The 21st century has become the era of the brand and in some cases…

If you run a small business, you are probably run you off your feet. And, that’s especially true during hard times.
In British Columbia, the majority of businesses are small — mom and pop shops of fewer than 50 people and micro-businesses, which have five or fewer employees. These businesses fight for survival during lean times and juggle cash-flow problems and expenses during the good times.
Either way, small business owners have to work hard to make it, especially when they don’t have deep pockets to begin with. However, there are ways to survive and even thrive. The key is focusing on what you can control.
So, rather than feel demoralized when hearing about the difficulties small businesses face, turn your attention to the aspects of your operation that you can change.
For example, contain costs by eliminating or reducing expenses. But do it strategically. Be sure your cost reductions…
