Kevin Marks compares and contrasts the Web as it was a decade ago, where it is right now, and where it possibly should be headed. He has some great observations about how cyclical the open and closed nature of the Web was and still is. He believes that we are in an era of silos, when it comes to the social web, and that with things like the indieweb movement the Web can once again be more open and distributed.

If you don’t know who Kevin Marks is here is a link to his wiki page. He’s worked at Apple, Google, Salesforce, and more. I sometimes hear him chime in on This Week in Google with Leo LaPorte, Gina Tripani, and Jeff Jarvis. This podcast is one of the best in terms of discussion about the Web and the cloud.
