Several key factors point to an array of interesting and powerful new mobile use cases tied tightly to personal and immediate control by theend user: 1) the ubiquity of mobile devices, 2) the growing number of intelligent devices that surround mobile users as they go about their daily lives, and 3) the ability these devices have to form proximal communication networks. For example, the device you always have withyou is contextually aware of your location, habits and preferences (inferred and explicit); when it also can tap into the proximal datacloud and the resources and services of devices in the user's immediate environment, it will unleash the potential for innovation around this "internet of things" and dramatically change how people interact with the world around them. Rob will talk about how mobility, proximal data and proximal communication enabled by meshes will help to create new ways of interacting in both the developed and developing world.
