FYI, I just finished writing a breathless blog post on this topic,  
including an enthusiastic endorsement of CouchDB:

In a nutshell: My hope is that “Web 3.0” (which I agree is a silly  
term and an over-generalization) will center around the  
decentralization of Web applications. Web 2.0 distributed content  
production out to the end users, but the servers hosting the data and  
the apps are still monolithic and proprietary. I've been hoping for a  
long time that things can evolve in a more distributed (if not truly  
peer-to-peer) direction, and CouchDB really seems like a big step  
toward there.
