Otherwise known as The Convergence of Everything

Mark Shuttleworth, famed trailblazer for Ubuntu Linux and head cheese at Canonical, has written a fascinating, powerful and succint vision of the future.

In his own words: “By 14.04 LTS Ubuntu will power tablets, phones, TVs and smart screens from the car to the office kitchen, and it will connect those devices cleanly and seamlessly to the desktop, the server and the cloud.”

What struck me about this is a) his admirable ambition and b) how it ties in so neatly with developments in web design, namely the pervasive and semantic web and responsive web design for all devices.

Hats off to visionaries, entrepeneurs and clever people like Mark Shuttleworth, Tim Berners-Lee and Ethan Marcotte (amongst many, many others) who make my life and work so darned interesting.
