Steve is an excellent speaker. He has a melodic voice and is marvelously well-spoken. You might think this would make his talks riveting, and you’d be right. This talk is no different, even though it’s about the seemingly uninteresting topic of web standards.
The idea here is to allow web developers – those who are using the browser APIs every day – to affect the innovations of the browsers. Steve describes what he envisions:
A truly revolutionary idea. I hope to see this become reality.
As a side note, I also love Steve’s jabs at Google:
Google is the biggest threat to a free and open web, just so you all know. I know they give you free email, so you love them, but they’re worst than Microsoft ever was.
A classic watch – would certainly recommend you take the twenty minutes and thirty seconds to listen to Steve’s talk.
