Regine over at WMMNA has an interview with the author of the book Everyware which describes a near-future with computing without computers, everywhere, all the time and without us noticing it. Those of you following the WiLife and Red Coat, Black Coat trends would find it of interest. On the term Everyware, Adam says:

A multi-touch interface may be offered on an otherwise ordinary desktop device, the human interface with an embedded sensor grid may be entirely conventional, a touchless transit pass may seem to have little in common with an ambient information display, but to my mind they’re all symptomatic of an underlying unity: one having to do with the disappearance of obviously technical paraphernalia beneath the threshold of perception. It’s that conceptual unity that people will be experiencing, and it’s that which I had hoped to capture with the word “everyware.”
