Here I am again, writing late at night with more thoughts on Cosmic JS and what it could do for developers and content creators. For some reason I keep thinking about Doogie Houser and that theme song...
So here's what I'm thinking: Everything is going the way of subscription services. Music, movies, tv, enterprise software, you name it there is a company out there that will offer it to you without you having to download software, install an app, populate a database. Everything is moving toward a service economy.
This is going to continue because the trend of human nature has always been toward better customer service, the less a customer has to do, the better the service.
With this in mind, comes the idea that your website's content doesn't need to be locked into a database. It doesn't need to be something that has to be installed. Your content can live freely as a service and can be accessed anywhere a device is needing to connect. This means your website, your app, your business is allowed to be accessed anywhere and it's content is easily transported to wherever it needs to go. This is huge.
APIs are now the DNA of the internet. They connect everything from your favorite blogs to your tv to your facebook news feed to your twitter stream to everything you access on the web and any content in any smart device, period. APIs are content.
So here's the question: If APIs are our content platforms, why aren't we managing our content in the APIs? Well now you can.
You can now manage the content of your website or app in Cosmic JS on a fast and secure content framework independently of any downloaded software or managed system.
Welcome to the 21st century. Your content is still king and it is now delivered everywhere...
