Information Evolution And The Future Of The Web

Abstract: The Web is an incredible informative media, but its same success has turned it into a two-sided phenomenon. On the one side, it has got plenty of information, a richness of contributions and data that is unprecedented in the history of humanity. On the other side, the sheer size of the information present in the Web make it hard to access and to use at all levels, humans and computer-based. In this paper we present a high level perspective on this two-sided nature of web information, by introducing the general concept of Trust Scenario and see its implications by defining major axes of information, and the corresponding directions they can lead to in the future of the Web.
