Everyware : The Dawning Age of Ubiquitous Computing

Adam Greenfield's new book [Everyware: The Dawning Age of Ubiquitous Computing] explores the ubiqutiousness of technology & computing for the next generation. Everyware attempts to explains the details of "information processing embedded in the objects and surfaces of everyday life". Design and function embeds naturally in lot of things we encounter daily with.

To give an excerpt from Kamala Bhatt:
And with the coming of the IPV6,, the next generation Internet, Adam thinks that every grain of sand in the world could have an IP address. Every device at that point could have multiple IP addresses. Currenlty, we are using the older IPV4 technology, where we are running out of IP addresses for these rapidly proliferating devices. The fact that every object in the world could potentially have an IP address is partly what worries Adam.
Jeffery Zeldman & TadSpot [Everyware live - part 1, part 2 ] covers this in detail.
