The "browserver"

Patrick Logan writes, in response to another high profile “Web wins, Web wins!” post, this one by Mitch Kapor;

[…] how long before a web *server* is as common place on the laptop as the web browser is today?

Not as long as you might think, especially with wonderful hacks like a Javascript Web server(!!)

You can also do it the easy way, like I did for the company I founded in 2001; a combination J2ME Web browser and Web server for the RIM Blackberry. Man, the fun we had with that … RSS POSTs to Web pages with the update reflected in the bookmark list, remote editing of calendars and notepad entries… The sky was – and still is – the limit. Avoid the distractions; the Web is where the action’s at.
