RWW write-up on AR, giving a commentary explaining the whys and wherefores. The author runs the Bay Area Augmented Reality Meetup Group, so its a bit evangelical. Some interesting links to example services. Also commentary on 'ambient intelligence': "Ambient intelligence is a human interface metaphor. It implies that the connected devices around us are all connected to some form of intelligence. We see this when we drive through an automated toll system like FasTrak on the Golden Gate Bridge. Using the RFID tag issued by the bridge authority, the bridge knows who we are and what to do. We don't have to actively submit intelligence of our own: the ambient intelligence takes care of the job."
Streamy is an uber-aggregation service that plugs into the APIs of everything else and allows users to share content across all of the platforms/services they alredy use.
More commentary on AR, usual suspects – Layar, nearest tube station etc.
