User:Colby Russell/Draft:Motivation and background

From wiki

[Imagine slogging through dozens of academic papers authored by folks who don't know how to get to the point. A "Motivation and Background" section is how you get to the point (not "background then motivation"; this section should begin with something like—if not literally—"We are motivated to...").]

What problems are we solving?

  • implicit step zero / accessibility
  • long-term software fragility

How does solve it?

A novel executable file format that works on legacy systems today and will continue to work into the distant future. [Why? Because...] We target the browser runtime as a fallback, which is the only thing that has made inroads on providing a truly universally accessible runtime (for better or worse) with a credible commitment to long-term backward and forward compatibility.

Anything else?

There are some other nice properties. [They should be listed.]
