An Infrastructure For Websites

Josh KoenigJOSH KOENIG of the Pantheon website management platform is my guest in Episode № 138 of The Big Web Show (“Everything Web That Matters.”)

Josh & I discuss how the industry is evolving, how smartphones are driving web growth, the connection of the web to real life (and the notion that there’s less and less of a meaningful distinction between the two), the idealism of the early web, why technology doesn’t solve human problems, why truly revolutionary change occurs only when new technologies fade into the background, and a future in which the back-end grunt work of website creation is automated.

Josh Koenig is a Co-Founder and Head of Product for Pantheon, the website management platform for WordPress and Drupal. Prior to that he was a founder at Chapter Three, a web consultancy based in San Francisco. Josh has been involved in building the internet with Open Source and Free software for nearly two decades.
