The following technologies promise to have enormous impacts, and promise to become the foundation for an open, location based mobile web:
- Mesh networks
- VOIP and Video over IP
- Location and context-aware services
- Mobile Commerce
We'd like to start a process to begin exploring the potentials for cooperative platforms for an open mobile IP web, particularly focused on constructive models for network service operators who struggling to understand how to -control- these phenomena.
We'll begin a dialog on new service models for opening their networks up for innovative 'edge' developments by creative end users and entrepreneurs that would drive demand for a broad range of IP services beyond limited currently limited walled gardens of 'enhanced services. Our working hypotheses is that a 'rising tide will lift all boats'.
