  4. The most profound technologies are those that disappear. They weave

    themselves into the fabric of everyday life until they are indistinguishable from it. —— Mark Weiser, Xerox Parc, 1991 The Computer for the Twenty-First Century
  5. @bonbonking #xebiconfr • “The first era we call mainframe, each

    shared by lots of people. Now we are in the personal computing era, person and machine staring uneasily at each other across the desktop. Next comes ubiquitous computing, or the age of calm technology, when technology recedes into the background of our lives.” 9

    people share a computer Personal Computer one computer, one person Internet - Widespread Distributed Computing Ubiquitous Computing many computers share each of us
  7. @bonbonking #xebiconfr • Context awareness originated as a term from

    ubiquitous computing or as so-called pervasive computing which sought to deal with linking changes in the environment with computer systems, which are otherwise static. 11

  13. Field Size Description UUID 16 bytes Application developers should define

    a UUID specific to their app and deployment use case. Major 2 bytes Further specifies a specific iBeacon and use case. For example, this could define a sub-region within a larger region defined by the UUID. Minor 2 bytes Allows further subdivision of region or use case, specified by the application developer.

  18. @bonbonking #xebiconfr • The purpose of a computer is to

    help you do something else. • The best computer is a quiet, invisible servant. • The more you can do by intuition the smarter you are; the computer should extend your unconscious. • Technology should create calm. —— Mark Weiser and John Seely Brown, Xerox Parc, 1996 The Coming Age of Calm Technology 102
