Now we’re entering Web 3.0, which is mobile, and we are in the thick of it.  The Mobile Web 3.0 has elements that build upon prior eras, but it also has several distinct and different elements from what’s come before.  Some of these distinct elements of the Mobile Web 3.0 era include real-time, ubiquitous (always connected, always with you), location aware, sensors, tailored, smaller screen, and high quality camera and audio.
