  • Hi,

    don't know whether this is some technical glitch here in slideshare or not, but I can't see your presentation in slideshare (seems to have '0' pages instead of 55) although I was able to read it here in your livejournal page (go figure, it should be the same).

    Regards,

    Flavio.

Transcript

  • 1. Web 2.0 is Sharecropping JesseVincent jesse@fsck.com
  • 2. (That’s bad)
  • 3. This is a rant.
  • 4. The bad old days:
  • 5. Pic of sharecroppers
  • 6. You farmed land you didn’t own...
  • 7. ...with tools you couldn’t really afford.
  • 8. You paid for it with part of your harvest...
  • 9. A pretty sweet deal...
  • 10. ...until things got bad.
  • 11. (Things always got bad.)
  • 12. In a bad year, you got further in debt to the land owner.
  • 13. The (more recent) bad old days:
  • 14. pic of mainframes
  • 15. Things got a little better:
  • 16. Pic of PCs
  • 17. Things weren’t all rosy:
  • 18. Pic of BSOD
  • 19. Sometimes new versions of software killed features...
  • 20. ...so you were locked in to old versions.
  • 21. pic of win 31?
  • 22. Things got ‘better’:
  • 23. rms che
  • 24. Now, things are getting worse again...
  • 25. What happens when your favorite service goes down?
  • 26. pic of twitter being down
  • 27. ...or stops accepting new signups?
  • 28. ...or gives all your data to the secret police?
  • 29. Pic of yahoo.cn
  • 30. You don’t own the services you use.
  • 31. When the service provider cuts you off, that’s it. No recourse.
  • 32. Not so secret shame: I’m a really bad zealot.
  • 33. My calendar lives at google.com.
  • 34. I make a web 2.0 tasklist service called Hiveminder.com
  • 35. pic of hiveminder
  • 36. Using hosted apps is going to hurt you.
  • 37. Data access is important.
  • 38. APIs are great.
  • 39. ...but easy access to a service just makes it easier to get locked in.
  • 40. What about Google Gears,Adobe Air, etc?
  • 41. Great. now you can use your word processer while you’re offline!
  • 42. Pic of wordperfect
  • 43. Real offline apps shouldn’t need servers.
  • 44. Real offline apps should sync like you do.
  • 45. I’ve been hacking on an open source database called “Prophet”.
  • 46. It has an API like Amazon SimpleDB or Google App Engine’s...
  • 47. It’s designed for “team-scale” apps.
  • 48. It’s built for P2P replication and disconnected use.
  • 49. App #1 is the canonical “offline bug tracker”.
  • 50. App #2 will probably be a BBS you can sync over sneakernet.
  • 51. bestpractical.com/prophet
  • 52. Make sure nobody can take away your right to use your software. Thanks!
