Good JoelSpolsky article. Musing on Trello.

"The great horizontal killer applications are actually just fancy data structures."


"Horizontal" is Spolsky's term for an idea very similar to my thought that the best applications capture syntactic rather than semantic commonalities : SemanticCommitment

So, yes, horizontal (syntactic not-semantic) applications are basically data-structures.

Does this mean data-structures are applications? Like JonathanEdwards's SocialDataStructures?

Who was that guy that pointed out that InternetWebServicesAreCommandLineTools? Similar principle.
