We've been calling it the eXtended Web, or Xweb, or WebX, but maybe the better name is the 'metaweb', as suggested on slide 19, or even just 'meta'. So then we would have 'metalearning', 'metagames', 'metacommunity', 'metabusiness', and the rest. To 'go meta' would be to embrace the full extent of meta: not just the internet, not just the web, but mobile access, geo-location, haptic input, sensor networks, ubiquitous data, analytics, cloud and mesh computing, and the rest of it.
