Emergent Interface for the Internet
John Ko, CTO/CEO, Cincro Communications Corporation

Track: Business
Date: Tuesday, May 14
Time: 2:45pm - 3:30pm
Location: Lawrence

Sharing of information is still the great promise of the Internet age, but tools available to permit large scale sharing and creation of content by the masses are difficult to use, limited to static content, or limited to text-only messaging. This lack of interactivity has limited the adoption of the Internet for human-to-human interactions.

The majority of interaction today between individuals occurs over specific items of content, which do not preserve the context of the interaction. Further, none of these solutions enable the conversion of interaction about content into context. The solution is to bring all content into a unified visual context for human-to-human communications and interaction.

This session explores a new way of spatially organizing information and shows how easily individuals can then share content while presenting it in a unified context via the Internet.

The presentation parallels many ideas pursued by Jef Raskin and ZoomWorld. The key extension or differentiation is that the concept of distributed and scalable ZoomWorld is elaborated; thus opening the possibility of having access to the ZoomWorld through even a wirelessly connected handheld device or the next generation mobile phone.
