I’m just back from the Citrix Startup Accelerator where I was asked to babel a bit about my view on the future of the Web/computing/tech in general. When I did the research for the talk the one thing which stood out and excites me more than anything else is the emerging field of ubiquitous computing.
Anything from the Nest thermostat to the incredible Electric Imp platform/kit and the fact that Apple now puts more compute-power and memory into a cable than I had available when I started programming — the future is clearly: Tons and tons of CPUs surrounding you, sensors providing input on pretty much anything and software being the magic glue.
I am giddy with excitement.
The big question is: How do you plan for this future? What will your company look like and do with all this compute power, inputs and new interaction models?
