Hoccer目前实现如下很酷的用户体验:
1.用手指可将图片或其它数据从一台移动设备拖到另外一个移动设备;
2.可把图片或其它数据从一台移动设备甩出,由另外一个移动设备接住。

对于上述效果我测试过,效果还是不错的。当把一张图片drag到另外一台设备时,其体验就像把一块玻璃上的一张实际的图片滑到另一块玻璃上,超酷。当网速较慢时,drag过去时首先出来的是一个轮廓,然后逐步展现出来。
根据其API介绍,设备在共享了Geo环境信息后产生连接并传输。Hoccer的API取名为Linccer,其说明摘要如下:
The Linccer API is intended to connect arbitrary devices on the same location. The devices do not need to be in the same local network or use a common connection type, they just need to share the same (geo) environment. Our server uses environment informations, like gps coordinates to detect the devices that should be grouped:

另外我对此技术有如下估计:
1.今后类似体验的技术可能不仅体现在应用层面,应该会做得更加底层,从而成为一种通用/标准的用户体验;
2.传输方式可能会把NFC等也整合进来。

新公司QWiki

研究了一下新公司QWiki,三点感触:1)有技术门槛;2)目标清晰,“forever improve the way people experience information”;3)做平台,platform。
看过该公司两位创始人在Techcrunch Disrupt上show demo的演讲后,很容易被公司创立者所展现出的创业激情所感染。

augmented humanity

最近经常出现思维短路的情形,是不是个人太依赖云存储了?自己的个人日程、笔记、参考资料都在云端。移动应用和云计算在带来‘augmented humanity’的同时,会不会让人自身的记忆退化?

或者根本就不是因为以上原因,而是自己已经老了。

This is no small vision, no tactical marketing ploy—it’s becoming a key part of Google’s picture of the future. In a speech last September at the IFA consumer electronics fair in Berlin, Schmidt talked about “the age of augmented humanity,” a time when computers remember things for us, when they save us from getting lost, lonely, or bored, and when “you really do have all the world’s information at your fingertips in any language”—finally fulfilling Bill Gates’ famous 1990 forecast. This future, Schmidt says, will soon be accessible to everyone who can afford a smartphone—one billion people now, and as many as four billion by 2020, in his view.

义乌小商品市场与Facebook的3万多种工具,Small commodities market in Yiwu vs. more than 30000 small tools(still increasing) integrated in Facebook
