Friday Tech Talk: A Vision of Post Mobile Computing

Mobile computing is one of the biggest trends driving new developments in computing today. But what comes next?


In this presentation from the fantastic Douglas Welton, he'll explore several factors that could shift the mobile paradigm into the next gear such as the potential for changes in battery technology, cloud computing, big data, hardware form factors and user experience.

      D.I. there will be one but it usually takes a week or so to make it available. Josh replies here once he has it up on youtube.

    Douglas's talk today reminded me of this quote by mathematician Alfred North Whitehead:

    It is a profoundly erroneous truism repeated by all copybooks, and by eminent people when they are making speeches, that we should cultivate the habit of thinking of what we are doing. The precise opposite is the case. Civilization advances by extending the number of operations which we can perform without thinking about them. Operations of thought are like cavalry charges in battle - they are strictly limited in number, they require fresh horses, and must only be made at decisive moments.

    Or, as Larry Wall put it, "Laziness is the first great virtue of a programmer...that makes you go to great effort to reduce overall energy expenditure."
