PPK wrote an article, and today Jake responded, and I agree with them both in broad strokes. I don’t think a moratorium as PPK suggests is a good idea, but the sentiment is understandable. Jake makes some good points, but I tend to disagree that the Web should be able to do everything native can.

In my view, the Web’s main strengths are the hyperlink and its ubiquity, and I question what value many of the proposed standards will bring.

Then I watched Christian’s latest talk and realize I’m not alone in my concerns and am still a techno-hippie.
