He added that it's not so much the computing power of new technologies like tablets and smartphones are supplanting the PC, but that these new devices are encouraging new ways of working and communicating.
"These days, it's becoming clear that innovation flourishes best, not on devices but in the social spaces between them, where people and ideas meet and interact. It is there that computing can have the most powerful impact on economy, society and people's lives."The important thing here for media and journalism is the vision expressed - the continuing expansion of more mobile connectiveness and use, and the continued growth of social computing activities. Media and journalists should be thinking about how to take advantage of this shift.
