why is it necessary to name and date each member of his family. None of them have any articles of their own. What purpose does that information serve? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 17:44, 17 October 2007 (UTC)
Ubiquitous Computing Principles
The article says Weiser gave a number of principles "during one of his talks". Those are widely cited among the internet - probably because of this article. But there is no exact source given - why? Where exactly did he say this? Is there any proof in actual published or publicly accessible material? 184.108.40.206 (talk) 09:16, 10 August 2012 (UTC)
What happened to objectivity?
Ubiquitous computing - as a concept, rather than a name - has been predicted for decades by numerous scientists and countless science fiction writers. None of this man's fan club have made a case for Weiser's views to be particularly special. This reads like a speech from a memorial service, rather than an objective account. Further, the reference supporting him being "widely considered to be the father of ubiquitous computing" looks as if it is exactly that - can't be sure, as the link is broken.
Separate Calm Technology Article?
A colleague and I have been working on an article draft for calm technology. Currently the "calm technology" article redirects here. We believe that there has been enough further research and development by others besides Mark Weiser since the redirect creation which would warrant a new calm technology article. Our draft can be read and/or edited here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:Articles_for_creation/Calm_technology
