Brent Simmons on web development

You could say that writing iOS and Mac apps is like living in a town where one company provides most of the jobs. (Sure, you could work at the diner, but all your customers work at this one company.)

And writing web apps is like living in New York City, where choice and contrast is everywhere, and sometimes A and B (and C and D) are all equally cool but different.

The web is the cosmopolitan environment.
