It’s easy to get excited about the mobile web. After all, it’s supposed to change everything.

If you listen to people like me, the mobile web is going to be Web 3.0. It’s going to merge the internet with the real world. It’s going to completely change how we connect to other users.

The mobile web is a medium for managing our complex and nuanced digital relationships, those niche interests that bind us together with people that don’t otherwise have anything else in common with. Those experiences that somehow make our days more intense and meaningful…
