The web is no longer really about pages

Stephen Blyth had some deep thoughts about Webstock, and was unsure if it was trees, wood or the whole of cyberspace he couldn’t see. But he did draw some conclusions:

Anyway, the things that I’ve grasped hold of include:

  1. the web is no longer really about pages, but about content served up in lots of ways (eg through widgets, RSS, feeds, badges as well as humble pages)
  2. mashups, once sort of wacky and wild, are really maturing, particularly with mapping
  3. basic web design and writing rules still apply
  4. there’s a few initiatives that will make web users’ lives easier, eg OpenID
  5. we’re not all aspiring software developers at heart.
