Do you really think a new platform is going to help? How? Who is going to create it? What are their priorities going to be? How will they assure it's better than what we have? How is it going to get in the hands of as many end users around the world? Why can't we just evolve the platform we have? If we can't agree on how to do that, how will we agree on the right new platform?
I tend to agree with you that the new platform is really hard to push into masses. I can only see 2 major benefits which can motivate people to adopt it: 1. unified platform for apps, as it is already web now, but without all inconveniences of the it in current state. 2. Major security and privacy built in on day 1, including distribution of apps via block-chain, for example.
