Douglas Crockford popped up the road from Sunnyvale to chat with Googlers on the topic of Gears and the Mashup Problem:
Mashups are the most interesting innovation in software development in decades. … all Â» Unfortunately, the browser’s security model did not anticipate this development, so mashups are not safe if there is any confidential information in the page. Since virtually every page has at least some confidential information in it, this is a big problem. Google Gears may lead to the solution.
Douglas played the role of the curmudgeon with his usual panache and hit at the problems that he sees with the Open Web, and the direction he would like to see people going. He was excited about WorkerPool for the sandbox perspective, and also discussed many JSON*-y things.
We are excited to have Douglas speaking and participating at The Ajax Experience once again.
