Why App Stores are broken - and how to fix them (the video)

A few days ago I spoke at Berkeleys >play conference on app stores, why and how they are broken and how HTML 5 and the Open Web app platform Mozilla is currently building will fix them (hint: The Web has won before and will win again). You find a short summary and the slides from my talk here.  Realizing that the slides pretty much only work if you also have the audio track, I decided to record a video version of my talk.  Please note that this is a recording which was done after the fact - so my voice might sound a bit less dynamic and enthusiastic than in the original auditorium (turns out that the built-in microphone in my Mac is really bad at picking up a loud, dynamic voice). If you prefer to watch the video directly on Vimeo, click here.
