RE: [xml-dev] 2007 Predictions

Someone better invent a better battery first.   Then…


The migration from component stereos to integrated stereo/TV/radio systems and back again is well-understood.  The question is, is the Web a single medium or multiple media on one carrier type and is the media type or the carrier that determines the optimum mix, or is it the distribution of the product across a single buying unit, eg, a family.  In the case of integrated systems above, the market for the single media system was revived when it became affordable for parents and children to stop consuming the same program in the same location:  the living room.  That is, when kids and parents got their own sets.


Apple tends to invent boutique products.  The market doesn’t scale until the knock-offs hit our shores. 


But that battery thing…. Will we see that in 2007?  Will we see that become widely available in the next five years?

With the launch of the iPhone + mobile Safari web browser (and the inevitable competitors), the modest inroads "XML on the web" has made in the mobile space will, unfortunately, be eroded. The "mobile web" and normal web become one, and continue to be ruled by nasty, ugly, non-semantic HTML that happens to get the job done extremely well.


Those who long for a semantic web (like myself) continue to cry themselves to sleep at night. (((sniff, sniff)))
