The Web Is Dead. Long Live The Internet. (Wired)

Two decades after its birth, the World Wide Web is in decline, as simpler, sleeker services — think apps — are less about the searching and more about the getting. Chris Anderson explains how this new paradigm reflects the inevitable course of capitalism. And Michael Wolff explains why the new breed of media titan is forsaking the Web for more promising pastures. The Atlantic: Technologies die violent deaths less often than we think. This is the basic problem with the Chris Anderson-anchored Wired cover story, “The Web is Dead.” If you think about technology as a series of waves, each displacing the last, perhaps the rise of mobile apps would lead you to conclude that the browser-based Web is a goner, but the browser-based Web is still experiencing substantial growth.
