Talks about technology cycles online.
“I’d started a company at university, a friend and I. I basically paid for the latter years of my university by doing Web development and, for better or worse, was responsible for a lot of the Commerce faculty websites. I remember this vivid moment of, “Ah, the Web’s done”. It was just static content and I was doing the same shit every day. I remember the meeting. And then six months later, it was database-driven websites. It was a really interesting experience. It’s fascinating now seeing people like Chris Anderson publish articles about the Web being dead. It was always going to go that way. You’ve seen these cyclic things of technology, the declaration that the Web is dead. The percentage of traffic that’s going to be dedicated to pushing around websites, of course that was going to disappear.”
