I’m always looking ahead, looking for signs of “the future” as it comes. Barbie has gender neutral dolls starting today. We talked about that in 1990, almost 30 years ago. Today, what’s 2050 got in store? Once a really good, cheap, non-slavery metal (looking at you Lithium mines) based battery that charges on vibrations, solar, temperature differentials and air movement comes out along with combination logic/memory chips that are basically fast MOSFET (CMOS) ,NOR (parallel) rather than NAND (serial) based (holds values with barely a trickle of electrons), and it’s embedded in a drying liquid (paint) with liquid thin–film touch interfaces and natural light refractive displays and mesh short antenna length (microscopic) you’ll have computer paint. Add that to low energy plant WIFI (it’s already grounded) and the planet is a computer.

 Paint your table. It’s now a computer.

  I haven’t. Oddly, I tend to stay away from other people’s future predictions, preferring mostly to think of them myself. Sense of ownership of ideas I guess.But I’ll look into this. I’m satisfied enough with the evolution of my computer paint notion and plant-based wifi system that I don’t worry about competition :)

 It’s got to go wet. Prior to that though, we have to work on our notion of what logic is and isn’t. Right now, it’s too constrained and inflexible, trapped by a serial rather than parallel mindset.Very few computer languages are successfully native with parallelisms. Erlang is probably the biggest success, invented for a cellular network first. Processes die without affecting anything around it.

  I’m all for advances in quantum computing BUT it solves a limited amount of problems and does not really improve general purpose computing.

 Definitely many valued and paraconsistent. But also missing from standard logics is time. Computational theories include time but they’re stuck in serial and modular thinking, focusing on data type problems rather than queues and how to eliminate them.
=====
 github’s fantastic success is that it took notions from backup software and applied it in such a way that it’s universal. It’s still limited – and I think awkward but I haven’t used it – I just know the theoretical.
=====
 Right now though, I’ll be happy to see a true state computer. Turn it off or on, it doesn’t matter. No data loss is possible – everything is saved and can be infinitely rewound.
=====
 A surprisingly good model for that is Google’s cloud word processor. It saves EVERY keystroke.
=====
  Here’s a simple fix: TEXT BOXES
Why do you lose what you type on Facebook?
It uses decorated old fashioned text boxes.

Pathetic.

  Can you see the connection between Time, queuing and data loss?
