Outside the Firewall


If we are indeed moving to a post-PC world, then how exactly will data be accessed? A new commercial venture of a popular open source project shows one path to this future.

Earlier this year, the CEO of a popular tech company made a great deal of noise about “the post-PC” world. Naturally, it was in his best interests to make such hoopla, as he was promoting a new tablet device. “Post-PC” is an interesting concept: It invokes images of a world in which we are all connected to all the information we could ever want or need through the use of devices that will seemingly know what we need before we do.
