The future of the web

Posted by on Apr 26, 2009 in Uncategorized | No Comments

I found this on my friend Tristan’s blog This is a Curated Life and I think it’s one of the most remarkable presentations I have seen of the potential convergence of ambient web technology, data visualization, and touch screen/heads up display technology. It’s produced by Microsoft Office Labs. Envision a future where information is ubiquitous and free (notice the digital newspaper without advertisements).  It’s great, but who will pay for the installation of all this technology, or the generation of all the information that populates the systems?  When we can curate our information uptake with complete control we will no longer exist in a society with shared cultural experiences like news, advertising, movies and TV.  Only social, enterataining, immersive and useful content will survive.
