I supplement my personal view for webApps.

I agree about the part of his awareness of the issues for webApps very much of the article.
However, I cannot find much possibility in the present Semantic Web as the solution. On the other hand, I
 think that the issues should not be left or ignored, and it should be solved by evolution of Web 
Browsers (includes web runtime etc.) based on standards. (The evolution may have flavor of the Semantic 
Web, but should be accompanied by the simple convenience reinforcement of the Web browser.)
I think such issues to be the important factors of the technology gaps.
