There’s no future for the Web – just for apps – says Wired’s Chris Anderson

26 August 2010 No Comment

As Chris Anderson put it:

[with apps on your device, iPhone/iPad namely] You’ve spent the day on the Internet — but not on the Web. And you are not alone.

Ok, this may sound strange, a little strecthed and provoking, but if you’re an avid iPhone/iPad user you may agree.

App usage vs. web usage is a compelling topic although I don’t think most people will drop looking at blogs (ours, namely) or using the full-page version of Facebook anytime soon.

As small services, apps has brought us a new way of interacting with such a complex world as the web itself has become; too many channels (FB, Twitter, Flickr, Skype, Friendfeed, MySpace, Gmail… you name it) require specific software as they become more and more true software applications rather than web applications.

Social media (or whatever) aggregators such as Flipboard are some sort of response to this issue but a lot has still to be done in this way.
