[The App Store is] not your platform and it never was. Geeks control the Internet because geeks built the Internet. We earned the freedom we have here. We earned it by creating something incredibly valuable and sharing it with millions and millions of people. What did we earn with the App Store? Did we build the App Store? Did we write iPhone OS? Did we design the groundbreaking hardware? Or are we just customers?
Really insightful stuff. I wonder if that’s part of the reason why I’ve been more drawn to web development than other platforms. The rules are less rigid there.
