Open Sources: Voices from the Open Source Revolution

Open Sources: Voices from the Open Source Revolution: "I was talking with some friends recently, friends who don't own a computer. They were thinking of getting one so they could use Amazon.com to buy books and CDs. Not to use 'the Internet,' not to use 'the Web,' but to use Amazon.com.

Now, that's the classic definition of a 'killer application': one that makes someone go out and buy a computer.

What's interesting is that the killer application is no longer a desktop productivity application or even a back-office enterprise software system, but an individual web site. And once you start thinking of web sites as applications, you soon come to realize that they represent an entirely new breed, something you might call an 'information application,' or perhaps even 'infoware.'"
