Web 4.0

Tweets mapped on Google Maps
Web 4.0 is going to be the next major extension of the Internet.  To date we have moved to Web 3.0, first putting data in the web, then social contacts, and now locations.  Now the web is growing in its factual basis, able to ask Who, What, Where, and When.  But there is still the necessary imagination of the user to ask Why and What If or Why Not?

The next logical step for the web is to combine the imaginative powers of creativity and virtual reality with the real world datas of facts.  To not only know what is happening where and by whom, but to be able to transform these facts in to what every creative visualizations we might have access to.   To not only be immersive in a augmented reality, but to be able to translate that augmented reality in to a augmented virtual reality where the real world and the imagined world are as intimately connected as they are in our minds.
