His arguments are that
- Anything that can be compiled can be compiled into asm.js
- Asm.js has basically become the universal runtime
All this lead to interesting consequences
- Nobody uses binaries any more, everything is asm.js
- The windowing systems of old have been ported to the DOM
- Deployments are as simple as a push
- Overall developer happiness has increased

During PyCon 2014 Erik Rose gave a very insightful talk about dos and don’ts of designing APIs. Towards the end he “gets meta” and groups all his points into categories drawing connections how different design goals influence each other.
