Description: 

Since 2017 hype has been building about "web3" reaching a deafening crescendo in 2022. Not to be confused with "Web 3.0/The Semantic Web" web3 proponents cite the advent of a next generation decentralized Internet built on top of encryption and blockchain technologies. This talk will provide an introduction to some key concepts, discuss ways in which they are being investigated in libraries, and offer some hot takes as to whether libraries should pay any attention to this much hyped development.
