Ubiquitous Computation

The age of ubiquitous computation is just around the corner. For those of you who do not know what ubiquitous computation is let me explain: it is the point at which the content of the internet and an ultra-personal computer are always at hand so as to easily provide you with just about any information you might need no matter where you are or what you might be doing.

We are still probably about three or four years away from attaining this state in the developed world and probably about ten year from attaining this state on the entire planet. The reason I believe that we are so close to realizing a state of ubiquitous computation is because of the serious progress being made with three technologies necessary for achieving this state. These three technologies are:

1. Ubiquitous broadband Wi-Fi

2. Affordable hand-held devices with powers comparable to today’s desktops

3. The widespread proliferation of extremely inexpensive computers for the developing world.

I believe that this very near future scenario of ubiquitous computation represents the next serious land mark in the exponential acceleration of technology which will serve as a global catalyst for radical changes in everything from business models to systems of government and warfare.
