Ubiquitous Computing and Appliances

John Seely Brown, formerly of Xerox PARC, is now an author, consultant and visiting scholar at the University of Southern California. His new article at receiver #18 is on ubiquitous computing entering the "home zone", the era of connectivity as a matter of course, and how crucial it is to keep things simple in order to cope with the wealth of information engulfing us.

Mike Kuniavsky of Orange Cone has a piece on the Evolution of Appliances in the same issue. A good time to note Bruce Sterling's 2004 neologism, Spime.
