In the Air
February 25, 2008
This mornings NYTimes has a nice story about Kevin Lynch and his dream of a Kevincloud. I still have Keven’s business card from Micromedia, but now he’s the chief technology office of Adobe on the verge of launching his dream now called Air.
Keven is realising the dream we had a few years ago for Smart Clients, Billy Hollis at conference after conference would preach the value of the Smart Client running on your desktop and connecting with the web when more data was required. Two years ago I thought we were going to get Smart Client adoption from Amazon and eBay because it would be more secure to use a Client rather then a browser.
