Great! As you've said it is a great starting point!

I like specially the first slide in your hightlights [1]. It is clear that
time spent on apps is more and it is important to know why:
- people are used to apps marketplace to look for info?
- people are "tired" of checking not adapted websites, with poor mobile
UX.. I have seen many taking a look into hotels, restaurants, events, ...
websites, seeing that they look awful on the mobile, and ask the owner for
a mobile app!
- companies going "app" first instead of "one web" first? marketing
business based on creating apps is easier to track that "one web" market?

On the other hand, I would said, as you mention, "native apps" development
tools are zillions ahead to "one web" development tools, specially because
some devices and OS companies have a "walled garden" market based on the
apps build for them... Could "we" bring something similar for the "one
web"? Could FirefoxOS work as an example of an alternative?

Just some thoughts! Best regards,
