Re: [ossig] Changes in the industry



bill gates' microsoft passport and the 'nerve system' comes to mind...
something like synchronous access to multiple services ? have a peek at
http://www.openlaszlo.org/ which is sponsored by ibm (ibm'ers care to
comment ?)

i noted a high degree of demand for 'dashboard' style interfaces from
the corporate world. so this might be the next 'in-thing' ?

if you read the ict strategic planning paper for the malaysian govt, you
will see a model that has physical and service separation between the
data, application, and presentation layers.

but the client will probably not be in the form of the traditional pc -
most likely it will be a portable or infotainment device (smart phones /
digital setop boxes / tivo / mmorpg). when will this happen ? probably
10 years after sun starts promoting it :)
