Everything is a web app – the shifting architecture of application development

Tarek Ziadé provides an astute summation of the shifting architecture of web apps toward being “just a proxy in front of database systems, or specialized web services, that sends back JSON responses to the web browser, and let it handle all the templating and all the display work”.

The exact nature of the “proxy” is pretty much anything that can be populated via a service, so I think his future client-side list really should continue to something other than HTML/JS frameworks (e.g., native Cocoa apps, etc).

Everything really is just a feed after all.
