USS Macon over New York City in 1933.

For a while now, I’ve wanted to make a sort of operating system for the web. When I say “operating system” here, I don’t mean it in the traditional sense—memory management, schedulers, etc.—but rather what it means in the modern sense: a suite of apps with a consistent UI and a toolkit to build other apps that work them.

It is an ambitious idea, and one that I’ve thought deeply about for a long time. But its probably way to much for one person to handle on their own.
