I am not the techie-geek-head that many are, but this article makes sense to me.

  //” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.For all of you who wonder why I, and several thousand others, love Gmail, this is a good place to start.  I see it.  The internet is evolving again. 

It won’t be long until we see the dissolvement of user-side software and the introduction and perpetuation of web-based, WYSIWYG software.  (What You See Is What You Get)

For instance . . . instead of creating a document in Word and then saving it to your local drive and then using an outside mail client (Outlook Express, Thunderbird) to create a mail message and an attachment so you can share the file . . . Imagine not having a local program that is so specific as to only handle text (word processing) like word.  But instead your browser has the ability to interface with remote “web page” software utilities.  So you are now creating docs or images or whatever remotely.  Of course the advantage is not for the single user, but is for integrated, multi-user networks.  There is no email from Joe to Shirley and cced to Jim.

The doc is centrally stored/edited/created so that it exists nowhere (not on my hard drive), but everywhere (real time accesibility from a variety of places).  All with one program which simply interfaces with remote servers.

The advent of blogs and aggregators and rss feeds and XML are changing the way we use the internet.  It is fascinating to think of where we may go.

Ok, I am done being a geek.

  1. As I’ve learned more about the history of the net, I discovered that Java Script was the pony that dream used to ride on.
    I read people’s explanations of exactly what you are describing. They hoped to accomplish it originally with Java Script.

    I think that is still a part of it all. Very interesting. I would have no idea where to start, but I do have an idea of what the concept is.
