Well, then 90% of the internet is crap, IMHO. Flash sucks. It's buggy and bloated and on its way out. HTML5 is where it's at.
90% of the internet would be crap Flash or no Flash. Bad web applications will exist no matter what tools are available for people to use.

The reality is that people want Flash on the iPad (and the iPhone). The fact that people are trying to develop workarounds is proof of that. And as annoying as Flash is, I don't want Apple to be dictating the direction that the web evolves in.

HTML5 is great and all, but it is not a replacement for Flash. There is no reason why HTML5 and Flash cannot coexist in the web ecosystem.
