This is an excellent piece on what the Internet/Web/Mobile is becoming and anyone in this/these world(s) should pay close attention
to what is happening. Yes, people will keep visiting web sites, but the world of the web and mobile is becoming about products.
PS: I think he is off the mark on PHP, but that is a discussion for another day.
It used to be that web people “published websites” — like the site you’re reading now. But today people who work on the web “manage products.” Im not sure when that changed, but clearly a memo went around. At one time, in the nineties, everyone was a “webmaster,” then for a while they were “site editors” or “site managers” and now theyre “product managers.” A website — even one as simple as Twitter — is no longer a singular thing; it’s a multitude of things from all over the place.
