The Paper stuff is a lot of ideas from the new Android that’s coming up.

The whole point of Polymer (and web components in general) are to either a) go out and find something that works how you want and plug it in / style it / customize it, or b) there isn’t anything out there and so you build it yourself and put it out there for others to use.

Polymer, or web components, isn’t changing the way you design stuff or how it works, it’s changing how things are built and then served to the client.
