Nature on the Future of Computing

The current issue of the journal Nature has a feature section on the future of computing, summarized at WorldChanging.com by Jamais Cascio. All the articles in the special section are available for free here, sponsored by Microsoft Research. According to Jamais, "only one of the eight feature articles talks about how future computers might operate; the rest look more at the evolution of how we use computers."

The Digital Convergence Initiative of the Texas Technology Corridor –

An opportunity to be a leader in establishing Central Texas as the world center of innovation for Digital Convergence.

As more intelligent, smaller digital machines are developed, as digital circuits evolve, and as digital communications becomes ever-more pervasive, they will continue to converge with computers, televisions, security systems, electric appliances, and many other devices, to provide new and useful functions for both the home and work environments.

This is Digital Convergence, and is the tip of the iceberg - the symbiotic coalescence of technologies, markets, and functions forming the foundation for present and future innovation and growth.
