Web 2.0: Platform
: At a gabber about the technical platform, Kevin Lynch of Macromedia said that what we’ve really seen has not been convergence — eventhing coming onto one platform — but divergence: content and communication happening on any device of our choice.
I like that. It’s beyond-the-remote-control.
Adam Bosworth of Google keeps emphasizing simplicity and universality. The hallmark of the platform will be that any 12-year-old will use it. (Well, actually, the 12-year-old in my house is the one who teaches me how to use platforms and applications.)
