eComm08 Millicomputing Talk

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?
