Micah visiting UC Berkeley

m.flickr.com

The new Flickr Mobile site is up, joining the recently-launched m.upcoming.org. Notice a trend in mobile URL design here? Expect to see more of this from Yahoo! and other places.

The interesting thing about these URLs is that they don’t end in .mobi. There are technical advantages (cookies) to staying with an established domain name. What are your plans, if any, for dot-mobi domains? -m

Somebody correct me if I’m wrong…

but there has never been a successful Java implementation of a commercial-grade web browser. (right?)

There exist lots of huge applications including IDEs, and editors of all sorts, but nobody’s been able to nail the whole XHTML+CSS+JavaScript thing in Java. (right?)

Take it a step further–no need to pick on Java–nobody has done this in any VM-based language (right)?

Coincidence or sign of greater forces in the universe? Feel free to post counter-examples in the comments.-m
