MAYA Design has created a thought provoking video that concisely explores the coming challenges of the pervasive computing era. They state that we are at the top of one “mountain” of technological progress, but that a sea change is coming that will radically alter our relationship with computing and information.
In their vision, information will no longer be locked up in the computer, but rather, people will be surrounded by the data – and this computing ecology will be a very different and challenging space to navigate.
Analysts agree that, within a couple of years, there will be over a trillion information devices connected to the global network. One trillion is a huge number.
One trillion seconds ago, humans were finger-painting on cave walls!
The computing industry has largely ignored the sea change that will occur when we near that trillion-node threshold. Our current devices employ technologies like relational databases and client/server models that were invented at least 20 years ago—models that will very soon be inadequate to confront the challenges of managing the quantity of information available in that very near future.
