Here is a nice picture by Duncan Davidson of me, speaking at eComm.
The talk went well and the conference was excellent. Very well setup and run as a single stream of short talks. The Computer History Museum in Mountainview was an inspired choice of venue.
My slides in pdf form at at this link.
The talk is a more technical version of the BIL talk I gave a few weeks ago. It is focussed on the next few generations of mobile devices - "The Future In Your Pocket". Some key ideas from the talks and discussions I had on this subject at BIL and eComm08:
- Pocket devices double capacity every year (laptop every two years)
- Intel will drive power down further to compete with ARM
- Intel x86/x64 in my pocket means I can use desktop versions of apps like Skype
- Wireless high-definition video out is a key new feature we could use today
- It's a server in my pocket, web services, video streaming etc.
- More performance at lower power in the future allows always-on services
- Ambient presence placing OpenAL 3D audio sources in the back of your head
- Stereo audio sunglasses with video camera, heads-up display
- Brainwave sensor (See Neurosky) input controller, records your stress/mood
- Lifelogging - permanently archive everything you hear, see and feel
- Telepathy - real-time, many to many lifelogging - immersive relationships
- Virb-ing - virtual/real blending Second Life or WoW into lifelogs and telepathy
- The killer app for teenagers in 2010 perhaps?
