Weekend Discussion

Has the Web revolution just begun? Or is the Web already in a phase of decreasing returns? Are the Web's possibilities boundless, or nearing exhaustion?

Are you still having fun? Is the Web a new learning experience every day? Or are you overwhelmed (or underwhelmed) with new standards, new programming paradigms, new letters like 'i', 'e', and 'x'? Is the Web still your friend? Or is it the monkey on your back?

I think today's web is a big bunch of hacks. With just 2 yrs of experience, I might be wrong. But all web-based projects have costed me too much pain.

I think dot com's are killing web's potential. I admit many web technologies might not be even invented without them, but they have commercialized the web too early, and they are a barrier to web's potential now.

And I just hope new open source projects like Mozilla take the control of web back.

To sum, I think it's not the web itself or web-based technologies but various dot com's that is killing the web today.
