I have been thinking about ubiquitous computing since our discussion in class and I think I have the best current example of ubiquitous computing – Shadow netWorkspace. Not that Shadow is alone in that distinction, but it is one we can all relate to. I can be at any computer in the world with internet access and log on to Shadow and create, upload and view documents. I can keep up with anything that the rest of the class is doing there as well. I do not have to carry any hardware with me because the necessary tool (computer with internet access) is available almost anywhere that I go.
Come to think of it, my blog is accessible from any computer too.
