Is Mashlogic a Glimpse of Web 3.0?

Today TechCrunch posted a feature of Mashlogic which is launching today in private beta mode by Bessemer Venture Partners.  Mashlogic promises to help users, “take back the web,” from its present state of commercialized content.  Mashlogic is an extension of Firefox that works, “under the hood” of the browser.  The application aims to deliver individualized information based on the user’s selection or deselection of mashes.

I used the preview of Mashlogic to view the Huffington Post.  I selected two mashes: Ad Blocker to – removed advertisements, and English Vocabulary to – show definitions of uncommon English words.  Here is a screenshot of the preview.

Previewing Mashlogic has me wondering, is this a preview of Web 3.0?  What do you think? In a sense Mashlogic is interpreting the user’s requests and delivering data that is perceptive to the user.  Am I reaching to far with this one?  What are your views.  Try the Mashlogic demo, or better yet request an invitation and try the beta.  Let me know your thoughts.

  1. interesting app … something like this (more on the personalization of the web … giving the choice to users about what they are interested in … simply put … an extension to the very concept of RSS feeds) could be quite a useful tool. thanks for sharing this …

  2. Atul,

    I’m always excited to share gems that I find in the blogsphere. I have been testing Mashlogic for the last two days and my first impression is that websites appear less crowded and very “quiet”.

  3. wow! good one Here’s some payback: Thought for the day? : Isn’t having a smoking section in a restaurant like having a peeing section in a swimming pool?

  4. Hi there to every one, for the reason that I am really eager of reading this web site’s post to be updated daily. It consists of fastidious information.
