We are seeing this during a Cambrian explosion in video conferring collaboration systems where it is currently impossible to Zoom call someone on Google Hangouts or Skype someone on FaceTime. This is of course a big step backwards from being able to email anyone or call anyone on the phone. Do we want to enter private companies virtual phone booths to make our calls, without being able to choose the service? We only recently climbed out of the morass of Microsoft Word documents (all of Office in fact), controlling collaborative documents (word can be edited, PDF cannot easily, is what I mean), primarily through Google Docs. We definitively do not want to live in the pockets of a private software company which can hide code or simply die. How many HyperCard stacks are available today? How easily is it to view Flash interactions?
