kab: So it's more or less a different view of how things work now? OK.The other change that is happening, and will continue to, is basically web 'unification', thanks mainly to social media. That unification will continue its slow merge with the commerce side of things. The final step there is to get all users onto the same browsing platform so it can then be limited (ie, enjoy your no-script plugins while you have them), because gosh-darn it, content should be seen the same way by everyone.And the wild-west, anything goes net you might have grown up with will by and large be history.
Land Ark: When the first smart phone applications came out and were largely useful and served a purpose I thought that it was what the Internet was supposed to be in the first place. And I thought it spelled the beginning of the end of web browsing. There is always going to be a need for Wiki and Google and the results they generate, but static web pages that only provide information and cost the owner money to host will likely fade away.And how come no one calls it the Information Super Highway anymore?/Looked at my old Tripod site last night and saw a page of "Stuff I like"d and noticed the Netscape icon. Boy, I was living on the edge in those days.
