So, I've posted a brief list of significant things that the technology business really ought to get working on.
I wrote this list up on the plane after reading several articles about how the technology business was in the doldrums, more or less arguing that we already had pretty much everything we need. The idea is so laughable... it reminds one of that infamous 1899 USPTO quote, "everything that can be invented already has been invented."
Take a look at the list - network aware UIs, security, and more. As a by-the-way, I do believe that Java could (or is) be a major force in virtually every one of these areas - or needs the innovation described (e.g. portable point energy sources).
As a brief disclaimer - I actually wrote this list a few months ago, but didn't bother posting it... like we need another coffeehouse pundit... but a friend told me I was to blame if the tech business collapsed because I didn't post it. Too much pressure for me...
Oh, and that USPTO quote...? Apparently, it's a myth . Go figure.
Feel free to either email me or post comments here...
