Programming Shift with Web 2.0

Mr. O'Reilly shares an email he received about the programming shift with Web 2.0.

As programmers move faster towards AJAX, rounded corners, and JavaScript frameworks, we sometimes don't stop to look back at how we got to this point with scripting languages.

Scripting Languages?!?! Forget the Java and .NET compilers. We are currently focusing on the presentation side of the Internet. Things are simplified using text and scripts instead of compiled languages.

Anyway, on to the post. Mr. Tim O'Reilly received an email describing the landscape of how much programming has changed and shifted in the last decade to a different direction (I love the comment about the "duct tape of the Internet").

It's great to read to compare how everything is moving from the traditional "programming" and towards a macro/scripting/user-based generation of content.
