Wired editor argues that app-based technologies are winning the race, forever changing the Internet landscape.

In a recent Wired article, Chris Anderson argues that the way we use the World Wide Web is being fundamentally altered by new innovations, so much so, that the web as we know it, is now “dead.” In other words, we are collectively abandoning the meandering experience of crawling the web in favor of streamlined (Internet-based) applications that maximize our efficiency.

You wake up and check your email on your bedside iPad — that’s one app. During breakfast you browse Facebook, Twitter, and The New York Times — three more apps. On the way to the office, you listen to a podcast on your smartphone. Another app. At work, you scroll through RSS feeds in a reader and have Skype and IM conversations. More apps. At the end of the day, you come home, make dinner while listening to Pandora, play some games on Xbox Live, and watch a movie on Netflix’s streaming service.

Basically, we are learning how to get to the point faster. No surprise there, but Anderson suggests that this shift is due to more than changing human behavioral patterns. According to Anderson, this shift is simply a natural byproduct of technological innovation, a cycle by which the ‘newest’ approach will always replace and outperform its predecessor.

Wired: “The Web Is Dead. Long Live the Internet”
