Web vs apps for the future

I enjoyed being part of the Pew/Elon future of the internet project once again.  This time they published some quotes from we surveyeds – here’s mine.

Bryan Alexander, a senior fellow at the National Institute for Technology in Liberal Education, listed three reasons he expects the Web to continue to be the go-to source for material: “One: The Web remains the source of many apps’ materials. Example—news portal apps, which duplicate website content. Two: Few producers can afford to build additional content and/or content production streams, alongside their Web work. Three: Consumers’ hunger to move content around their owned devices will trump walled gardens (i.e., Apple’s).”
