HTTP FTW

I was reading "The Web Is Dead. Long Live the Internet" today and a good response on gigaom.

To a number of people, "the web" = HTTP. And HTTP as a protocol on the Internets has clearly won.

The fun thing to notice is that "the web" to Chris Anderson and Michael Wolff is just content delivered on a web site. Video and peer-to-peer is still on average occurring over what protocol?

That's right!

HTTP.

So while content is diversifying on his web, HTTP is clearly the winner.
