QOTD: JP Rangaswami on what the Web is and is not

From JP Rangaswami: Be careful what you wish for

The Web is not about broadcast, it is not about access control, it is not about audiences and content. It’s not about Publishing 1.0, or for that matter Publishing 0.0.

And that makes me sad... But the potential is so much greater and I'm still enough of an optimist to have hope.

The Web is live, it is two-way, it is writeable. That is what makes it the Web, its interactive participative nature. The value proposition of the web in education, in healthcare and in government relies on this two-way-ness.

It's really pretty simple.
