William Loughborough : Yet Another Epiphany!

Yet Another Epiphany!
So there is now a head-mounted, hands-free cell phone with a built-in Talking Signs (Remote Infrared Audible Signage) receiver that includes the capability of decoding the code signal from any type 3 Talking Signs transmitter.

The code is just a string of numbers but of course since each transmitter's code is unique, it is in effect a URI.

I haven't seen it yet but I've been assured that it's a working production prototype. This might give Japan, Inc. a huge lead in the next generation of phones although of course the Signs receiver will only be of use when lots of transmitters are in place. Then we have location-based Web services to a fare-thee-well.

I go to San Francisco tomorrow for a couple days and am highly optimistic. This is nearly the last act in my 3 decade dream play.

On the other hand I still am running out of breath a lot lately, but it doesn't seem to be particularly dangerous. I just hope I can make the trip in some comfort. I know I won't be able to walk around the city much any more.

Love.

One wonders ... .. since GPS is so expensive (hardware wise) these days, would it not be an incentive for people to install talking signs as a kind of distrubuted GPS.  Then the URI from the sign could perhaps map at a server to a GPS uri and the sign owner has just provided the traveler with a geo position fix. 

Now via a server or a p2p network, people can write messages at that location that should be visable on traveling devices correctly configured.
