What the heck W3C? I don't want DRM!

over 3 years ago | From O'Reilly Programming | Author: Simon St. Laurent

....The saddest part of that discussion, however, is the question. What are we users—and what is the W3C—getting from building the risk of programmers being jailed into the core infrastructure of the Web? I have no doubt that browser vendors eager to cut deals will incorporate DRM into their offerings. Does that make it a good idea for the W3C to offer its name, its facilities, its intellectual property agreements, and its umbrella from antitrust prosecution to such a project? Why not leave the companies to pursue their own directions, and take on the risk of legal action themselves?

I’m left, however, with Berners-Lee’s failure to answer his own question, and his strange expectation that users can “ask” for something in return and hope to see it. I have too many memories of decade-old conversations with Microsoft employees after they had, for a time, won the Browser Wars. It was clear that the users I cared about, whether developers or individuals who just couldn’t make things work, were not the users they cared about. Our roles was just to create an ecosystem in which Microsoft could make a lot of money. (Microsoft is far from alone in that view—I only single them out for that past history.)..

A good product manager constantly thinks about about the happiness and efficiency of their team. They know that when a team feels unhappy with the product development process, they can’t make good products for customers, and they won’t enjoy their work.

Over the past months, I’ve been excited to share my rather primitive augmented and virtual reality creations with any who will spare a few minutes. Most of the time, anyone I can wrangle to my tech setup shows the same amount of enthusiasm. This is especially promising, as I realize my asking pe...  ...Read more

In most cases, your immediate reaction will be either to close overlay or to close an entire page with th...  ...Read more

Like every startup founder who had invested a lot of sweat, money and time in building something, I stayed adamant like a lioness protecting her cubs. Once I asked them, “Don’t you realize how much efforts I’ve put in building this?” The person replied, “I do realize. But I don’t give a rat’s as...  ...Read more
