"The idea is that Moore’s Law has pushed the price of computing so low that it is nearly disposable. Computing can be everywhere. People have talked about ubiquitous computing for a long time, but the era of cheap, low-power computing, and wireless communication has arrived." Paul Windley writes while presenting Mike Kuniavsky.
"We no longer need to serve as the knowledge intermediaries for computers, they can be embedded in objects to make the dynamic. What does this do to people’s experiences? People’s reaction to ubiquitous computing devices is to consider them more like animals than they do to rocks and other inanimate objects. People know their Roomba isn’t an animal, but they treat them that way." The story continues.
