The Mobile Native Cloud (via slideshare)
Each wave of computing changes not only how applications are MADE, and the economics behind them, but our very concept of what the medium can BE.
Consider the Post - PC computing era. It is defined by the rise of 10B mobile devices, which are converging in a globally connected cloud that is social, service oriented and massively scalable.
It's every bit the sea change for computing that the Web was to the PC, and the PC was to the Mainframe and Minicomputer that came before it.
Simply put, Post - PC computing opens the door to new forms of native experiences that are dynamic, data-driven and media rich.
This presentation above looks at the ramifications of this wave, including key industry trends and a real-world case study of a series of applications built upon this model.
I'd love your thoughts on whether you agree with the assertions in the presentation, if there are specific use cases particularly resonant for you, any 'gotchas' that you see, or areas where clarification is needed.
UPDATE: Paul Adams has written an excellent article called 'Why cards are the future of the web' that is highly complimentary to the concepts espoused in my SlideShare, and worth a read. The always-excellent Benedict Evans has also written on the topic.
