  • 2. a view from 10 years ago Cooltown: web-based mobility & ubiquitous computing 1. Rampant diversity of mobile and embedded information products, wireless and wired communication networks, and rich media content will be the norm, fueling an explosion of novel and sophisticated services to feed user and business demand for everything Net. 2. The future network environment is the web. In contrast to tightly held proprietary platforms, the web is an open, extensible, heterogeneous, standards-based network infrastructure for delivery of services. More importantly, web protocols and conventions are already understood by almost every network, computer and software developer on the planet. These key characteristics of openness and widespread acceptance will continue to be the basis for a thriving global marketplace of ideas, products and services. 3. Everything has a web presence. People, places, and things in the physical world will have increasingly complex online representations, allowing them to participate in web services. They will become first- class citizens of the web. This will enable services to become more personalized, more spontaneous, and more responsive to the wide variety of contexts in which people live their lives. 4. Bridging the physical and online worlds will bring the benefits of web services to the bricks-and-mortar world where people still live most of their lives. In turn, online environments will be enriched by access to physical places and devices, and to people that don't sit quietly at their desks. 5. Connected ecosystems of service providers will link together in creative and productive ways; a new paradigm will emerge as diverse services are woven effortlessly together.
