Beeb and FT bet on #HTML5. Future of media is open web

April 11, 2012

Very cool, the Beeb doubles down on HTML5 game developer Spaceport.io.

This follows the FT’s acquisition of nifty HTML5 developers Assanka. It looks like major media companies are increasingly bringing advanced HTML5 developers closer in-house.

Bodes well for continued innovation on the open web. The media business model does not fit neatly in vertical stack where revenues and customer interaction are tightly controlled by a third party device/marketplace owner.

For media to thrive, it needs an open and unencumbered relationship with its audience. Closed app ecosystems don’t support this. The open web in all of its forms does.
