Don Hinchcliffe has an interesting graphic in a recent post on ZDNet:
Some people have commented that it’s all buzzwords, and of course it is. But there is value in just collecting all the buzzwords that are relevant at the current time, and attempt to integrate them into something we can all get our arms around.
Most of these buzzwords are what I called plumbing, and he identifies a bunch more, plus some non-technical components that also could go into the soup. He calls the soup the “Web OS”.
Stuff for thought, at least for me. Because all of this together is definitely closer to a “house” (that mere mortals might want to buy) than “plumbing” (which is for plumbers/techies only).
