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.

I really like your angle on this, coreyography!

The economic (and municipal) limitations are highly relevant factors, and you're so right regarding the HD issue. Yet with among others VDSL (an improvement over ADSL using the same wires), we can already achieve much more.

Yes it *is* an interesting topic to wander off about. Thanks for the comment, I appreciate it.
