Pontifications

The web is the way now that we distribute information. We will need the web pages we create now to be readable in 100 years time, just as we can still read 100-year-old books. Requiring a webpage to depend on a particular 100-year-old implementation of Javascript is not exactly evidence of future-thinking. At least declarative markup is easier to keep alive because (see the 5th slide) it is INDEPENDENT OF THE IMPLEMENTATION!

...

We need to seize the initiative, and recreate a declarative, robust, lasting web. Let HTML5 play; HTML5 is now the assembly language of the web. It is time for some Higher-Level Languages! Who's in?
