First imagined in 1991 at Xerox PARC, \"Ubiquitous computing,\" -- the sowing of information processing into the environment is now a reality. Just as 20th century electrification and inexpensive electric motors changed hand tools into appliances, the Internet and inexpensive embedded computers are now transforming familiar objects. With the addition of networked computing, everyday things exhibit new properties. Objects have always been catalogued and counted. With near-realtime circulation of meta-data, they cast information shadows into databases and the Web. In response, we shift how we relate to these new kinds of objects. And with some objects as agents in their own right, we must consider how objects relate to each other. In this talk Mike will discuss how the nature of familiar things is rapidly transforming as their information shadows grow longer and more intertwined and why cars and purses are more like serials than you may have expected.
