Horace Dediu:

In that context, yesterday’s WebOS event was perhaps anticlimactic. But it’s still remarkable. Consider how far we’ve come. Step back now and remember the dark days only one year ago when, right after the iPad announcement, a  nearly unanimously chorus was pouring derision on the concept.

And now every computer company is trying to get a competitor out there.

Here’s the lesson: don’t believe anyone who tells you they’ve got the future of media figured out. We aren’t at the end of the period of change, we’re at the beginning. The landscape of production and consumption is changing month by month, and the landscape will look very different in a year’s time than it does now.
