2 Outline Where we are Where we aren’t –James Irvine Where we’re headed? –Jamie Banford

3 Where we are? Ubiquitous high-speed connectivity, indoors and out Massive pocketable computing power available to all ‘Invisible computing’ Everything connected –7 trillion devices connecting 7 billion people by 2017 (WWRF vision from 2007)

4 Are we? Except in the back half of my house, or between 5pm and 11pm each evening Massive pocketable computing power available to all ‘Invisible computing’ Everything connected –7 trillion devices connecting 7 billion people by 2017 (WWRF vision from 2007)

5 Are we? Except in the back half of my house, or between 5pm and 11pm each evening But you really need a PhD to use it, and did I mention viruses? ‘Invisible computing’ Everything connected –7 trillion devices connecting 7 billion people by 2017 (WWRF vision from 2007)
