I remember being "blown away" years ago in the late 90's when Scott
Raney had a little demo of
go stack url "http://somedomain.com/somestack.mc"
and it downloaded and ran the stack.
I later created a little desktop "CPU/Index" type app/splash screen
engine. and users could download and run modules I put on our web
server. It was a bit too far ahead of it's time and went nowhere (circa
1999-2000) But everyone was rushing to the browser to do everything
Now I'm sitting here with Adobe's Creative Cloud app, and many others
like "iTunes" itself, DropBox, COPY etc all the same thing: thin client
on your desktop, talks to remote servers, now called"the cloud" So all
the naysayers who said people would not download and install apps were
wrong (to some extent... the trust factor is still an issue for broad
Istill deploy some tools that way. So now, 13 years later, others on
the team here are saying "Oh... look, Adobe is doing it now like you've
been doing it all along..." All you can do is smile....
But, can we do this on Mobile? can the app on your iPhone download and
run stacks? I think not... What about Android? Probably not also...
Swasti Astu, Be Well!
