The Power of Pull: Your personal data locker.

Pull by David Siegel predicts the next disruptive wave to be the semantic web – a more standardized, accessible Web where our personal data will be so precisely parsed as to make logical conclusions possible. He predicts a fundamental transition from pushing information to pulling, using a new way of thinking and collaborating online. Siegel envisions the future of smart computing where your data follows you around and is accessible from anywhere through the Web, predicting that hardware and operating systems will become obsolete as the Web itself becomes the computer. The "cloud" will at last arrive with all its potential realized.
