Web 3.0 as defined by Google's Eric Schmidt

While many are still trying to piece together whats Web 2.0 and Google's CEO Eric Sdhmidt had launched into defining whats Web 3.0 at the recent Seoul Digital Forum . While Web 3.0 is not too far away, its still relatively hard to define whats Web 3.0. Eric's definition may not be too far out though.

Eric said that while Web 2.0 was based on Ajax, Web 3.0 will be "applications that are pieced together" - with the characteristics that the apps are relatively small, the data is in the cloud, the apps can run on any device (PC or mobile), the apps are very fast and very customizable, and are distributed virally (social networks, email, etc).

Any take on this?
