Bill Joy's Six Webs
In a lecture at MIT, Bill Joy explains that there’s not just one web:
[…] the “far” web, as defined by the typical TV viewer experience; the “near” web, or desktop computing; the “here” web, or mobile devices with personal information one carried all the time; the “weird” web, characterized by voice recognition systems; the “B2B” web of business computers dealing exclusively with each other; and the “D2D” web, of intelligent buildings and cities.
So rad it hurts. I love the image of the B2B web chugging along, all those servers just wrapped up in their weird silent conversations…
