Tim O'Reilly - The War on the Web

Tim O'Reilly is giving a keynote at Web 2.0 Expo NYC. Talks about the next war in the web. Not so much about browsers like it was in the early days of the web, more about what businesses are doing to be open or closed.

Cites the recent flurry of activity around bringing down Google by not letting them index content on major sites like New York Times.

Apple iPhone is such a great platform for innovation, but Apple has set it up in a way that they are controlling. Apple says that Google voice can't be on iPhone, Google then says Google maps will only be on the Android phones.

Tim's advice to Google, be rigorous in making sure that the user benefits.
