Dan was gracious enough to entertain a discussion about his new project --- besides the work he's doing at Sun.
- Make a uniform web content authoring platform, instead of all this aggregation of different technologies one on top of the other (http, css, flash, graphics, layout, floating objects, etc etc etc) --- which raise the creativity tax for no good reason.
- Make this thing run independently of the web browser. All of a sudden, all your UI painters become easier to deal with --- and you get consistent cross platform results inside and outside Explorer, Firefox, etc.
- Make creation of content easy for everybody.
