OWD - keep an eye on it


Open Web Devices. It is a very strong combination of words: today if it's 'soft' then the buzz is all about the web, if it's 'hard' then it's about the (mobile)devices, if it's a platform then it's about the openness. These three words together have all the power to become the Next Big Thing. OWD is a mobile operating system built around web technologies. It's a next step of Mozilla's Boot to Gecko (B2G)project started mid-2011. I have the feeling (and hope) that we are going to hear about this a lot.
