If:
web 1.0 = single interactions( publish + e-commerce)
web 2.0 = multiple interactions ("harnessing collective intelligence" via social networks, blogging and associated technologies etc)

Then:
web 3.0 will have to stake out something very different. I think that you may be on the right tracks with "machines + data" - something that is more autonomous than lots of collective human interaction. My guess is that it will involve the constant input of various sensors, both machine and human, building up a rich data and meta-data soup on the web that both humans and machines can tap into - a sort of cybernetic ecosystem producing and consuming information.

"Mash-ups" may be an early transitional web 2.x, as are ideas of the "semantic web". I don't think that we necessarily need any new technologies, but I do see the discussion of platforms, APIs, interoperability as part of the transition to web 3.0.

As for web 4.0 - well I'll speculate and say that I see that as the web becoming "conscious".
