Roger McNamee thinks that HTML5 is a “sudden dramatic disruption” that will fundamentally revolutionise the entire online consumer space. In 3 or 4 years, he says, we will have HTML5 companies that will be creating consumer apps that none of us can even imagine today.
As always, Roger didn’t mince his words. Arguing that Android is a “science project” and “reactionary”, he suggested that the closed Apple model is what consumers prefer and that it is the iPhone app economy that has created the necessary conditions for the imminent HTLM5 revolution. Fighting words, indeed, from a guy who once rolled all his dice on Palm eating the iPhone for breakfast.
