Emre Sokullu has a terrific post title “Why we should all care about the Open Web“. It’s probably aimed more at people who are curious or on the fence about the Open Web.
He deals with a couple core themes which are well worth reading about. Much of the Open Web’s value comes down to this statement for me:
Open web is equal to open data. And data fosters innovation and creates new opportunities.
The Open Web is not a hot topic for most people. It’s pretty esoteric and it will probably remain the domain of a pretty small group of people for years to come.
Still, it’s a drum worth beating.
As dismissive as many people are about maintaining a blog or site of their own (I have a half-written post about this somewhere), the time for indie sites isn’t over yet.
