Today about ten percent of the world's population-some 600 million people-have access to connected computing. Evidence suggests, however, that this number may grow dramatically. Mobile telephony promises to reach some two billion subscribers soon. As Moore's Law continues to drive down the cost of computing, new form factors appear that better fit the daily lives of more people, and new forms of wireless connectivity enable communities to "leapfrog" to high bandwidth connectivity, a large new population of computing users may be enabled
