O'Reilly and the dream phone and the Internet and cell phone on a collision course

A nice piece in the NY Times (online Opinion) from O'reilly Media founder Tim O'Reilly... the piece discusses the impending collision course, the state of the US Carriers, and the race for competitive advantage. I like this statement from O'reilly...

This is not “open.” It’s just a little less closed. A true open platform like the Internet doesn’t have certification of trusted devices or applications. Developers get to do anything they want, with the marketplace as their only judge and jury.
