Hi Alex, great post. Speed and the cloud are going to offer us fantastic things, one of those being Augmented Reality http://ngm.nationalgeographic..... I already use Google translate to review online posts from around the world and love that you can contribute to a better translation.
Very cool! You're actually pointing at something pretty interesting too: "the true power of a world community". Now that every human being on earth can contribute to the same cause if they want to.
Thanks for contributing to the translation cloud (and my blog)!
Great post Alex. I definitely agree - especially on cloud computing. I know mobile is already and will continue to play a huge part in all that we do.
Hey Alex, you make good observations in this post. The whole idea of mainframe seems to be returning, centralization of data, and the return of the most hated computer on the planet, the uncomputer called a Dumb Terminal.
My personal view, 100 Base Internet connections and numbers 2 & 3 may be integrated to appear as one.
I look forward to following your work.
I think dumb-terminals are definitely coming back in a big way. Once it's quick enough to stream the video for the entire display from the cloud then computers will become very cheap and will need almost no internals. To do this we will need much lower network latency as well as faster network speed. I'm sure the future will not disappoint us. I hear those scientists are hard at work in their labs as we speak! Great post Alex.
