After yesterday’s look at the issues surrounding podcasts and proprietary formats, today a listen to Cory Doctorow’s concerns regarding the future of the open web. While one can choose which (indie) software to use when subscribing to RSS feeds (be they of web pages or podcasts) Cory is concerned that when it comes to web browsers the options are shrinking. He’s concerned that with the new W3C proposal to add DRM as a web standard only the handful of big browser players have a future, not to mention the bunch of security vulnerabilities that come with the DRM can of worms. He spells it all out on the O’Reilly Hardware Podcast.
