I stand corrected. The Wired magazine article (the Sept. issue) is titled "The Web is Dead. Long Live the Internet," by Chris Anderson. I may have the title wrong, but the essence of the previous post to the article itself is about the same. Let me share a couple of gems from the article that caught my eye:

"Two decades after it's inception, the World Wide Web has been eclipsed by Skype, Netflix, peer-to-peer, and a quarter-million other apps."

Along with this little nugget....

"Over the past few years, one of the most important shifts in the digital world has been the move from the wide-open Web to semi-closed platforms that use the internet for transport but not the browser for display. It's driven primarily by the rise of the iPhone model of mobile computing, and it's a world Google can't crawl, one where HTML doesn't rule. And it's the world that consumers are increasingly choosing, not because they're rejecting the idea of the Web but because these dedicated patterns often just work better or fit better into their lives (the screen comes to them, they don't have to go to the screen).
