The Ubiquitous & Invisible Web

“The most profound technologies are those that disappear. They weave themselves into the fabric of everyday life until they are indistinguishable from it.” -Roy Want, in an article written for Scientific American.

Even though those words were uttered almost 5 years ago, the reality of an “everyware”, ever-present, and always on Web living both online and offline is now closer than ever. Faris Yakob’s article on the Invisible Web for Campaign magazine is a great read which puts this concept in a perspective not too distant from the near future.

A highly recommended read (pdf).
