Web 2.0 The web browser has been the dominant thin client, now rich client, for almost two decades, but can it compete with a new thin client that makes better technical choices and avoids the glacial standards process? I don't think so, as the current web technology stack of HTML/Javascript/Flash has accumulated so many bad decisions over the years that it's ripe for a clean sheet redesign to wipe it out.

Java Will Save The World!

This article sounds an awful lot like some old Sun Java stuff from long ago.

All we need to do is make everything run Java! Then we run Java to compute on the server, Java to display on the client, anyone can run everywhere and everyone can have a pony!

Honestly, this Java dream is a lot more realizable today than it was in 1999, but no one seems to be doing it.
