Two posts in the same day illustrate the problems at either extreme of ecosystem management on the web.
Apple exerts too much control
Firefox too little
Is there an obvious middle ground that doesn’t create a big management burden? Is there a technical, or architectural solution that would lead to good behavior with out requiring a human referee?
I can’t say what the solution might be. I suspect it will combine clever architecture, good incentive structure, and some crowd sourced human oversight. But I sure hope there is a solution otherwise we are staring at a fundamental limitation of the web.
