What bothers me is that when we talk about the mobile Web or mobile Internet it suggests a different Web than the fixed, broadband Web. My struggle comes in being able, on the one hand, to say that there is but One Web, there is only One Internet, and, on the other, discuss the Web one lives when mobile.

Well, starting today, I will call the distinction the ‘desktop Web experience’, or ‘desktop Web’, and the ‘mobile Web experience’, or, as before, ‘mobile Web’. It harks back to the foreground-background concepts defining experiencing the Web from the PC (now to referred to as ‘desktop’) and the mobile (which, due to my position, I might be ‘forced’ to call ‘multimedia computer’, or ‘MC’ – heh).
