Mobile and Open: A Manifesto

Thread Title:
Mobile and Open: A Manifesto
Thread Description:

Howard Rheingold puts forth a vision, threadlinked above, of how mobile should be, for all to benefit from the rise of the mobile web. How it will be is probably far different but it's an interesting read and a commendable attempt to influence the thinking of those that are defining the medium:

Only a cockeyed optimist would forecast an open, user-driven, entrepreneurial future for the mobile Internet. This should not prevent us from trying, however. Sometimes, envisioning the way things ought to be can inspire people to work at making it that way. That's what manifestos are for.
