Notes from David Kaneda, “Web, Native”, DevCon5

cool contrast between early wikipedia page versus Sencha touch app running in mobile browser

most of the world’s traffic stop signs are red and octagonal

form follows function: craigslist is really ugly and works great

The web is a dynamic context; the app is a static context; with web apps you can decide

AWESOMEly tall screenshot of boston globe’s responsive HTML in phone mode; it’s a great job so far, but not ideal

Worrying divergence of host OS’s — fancy 3D things versus flat 2D rectangles (see Skeuomorph); tend toward the minimal (see Flipboard)

Q: do skeuomorphs make casual / novice users more comfortable?
