Serendipitous Juxtaposition Yields Insights Into the Future

Clicking around my Bloglines feeds today and the following set of articles from Slashdot were displayed…

The first is about streaming content from a home-grown media center running Linux to your cell phone. In other words, the cell phone as a delivery platform for all sorts of media.

The second is about Google releasing an Ajax framework for building net-centric applications – PC is needed, but not necessarily vital since these would all run in anything that can run a browser.

The third is about IBM supporting Open Document Format which wrenches customer lock-in of Microsoft Office users.

The juxtaposition is with the last entry with Bill Gates saying that PCs are dead yet.

Draw your own conclusions.
