We are wearing our information window on our hips or carrying it in our purses. Our mobiles have become not only sources of information but mechanisms of control. They are also becoming instruments of truth and freedom. We are all roaming reporters. They are becoming part of the information ecosystem warning us of hazards, helping us to be more healthy. We can see them used heavily for access to geographically-indexed information. They can also form a technical eco-system of devices that cooperate to perform tasks for us. Of course, they are also useful as telephones and social interaction enablers.


Vinton G. Cerf is vice president and Chief Internet Evangelist for Google. He is responsible for identifying new enabling technologies and applications on the Internet and other platforms for the company.
