frankly, i don’t think the biggest problem with web is the governance structure. the “standard tech” is slow, heavy, and poorly designed from its roots. even after massive investments from multiple large organizations. now the complexity is so high that even microsoft has pulled out of the browser race. mozilla is still around for ideological reasons, but they will have a hell of a time keeping up.
we need intentionally simple protocols for building portable, modular, network applications. not ..whatever web has become.
