About Me

  • Hello you. I'm a 38-year old MSc student, studying Advanced Computer Science at Sussex University. I'm especially interested in Internet and mobile software, sensors and pervasive computing, user interfaces, and the process of developing great software.

    Before that I spent 11 years running Future Platforms, a software company I co-founded which makes lovely things for mobile phones, and which I sold in 2011.

    I read a lot, write here, and practice Aikido and airsoft. I live in Brighton, a seaside town on the south coast of the UK, with two cats and a clown.

Tom, I totally agree w/ you. I too have seen a lot of entries recently about fragmentation, and gaming industry and/or AJAX saving the mobility developers, etc. -- it won't happen, not that way, not any time soon... Thanks.

Hear hear. Anybody that claims they have an 'instant' solution for the fragmented mobile development environment is speaking out of their rear end. I agree with you that the situation, although not ideal, is far better than it was a few years ago. In my experience, if properly written, it is possible to have your J2ME application run fairly well on a number of different handsets from various manufacturers without modification.

Hello Tom,

Again, evolution and innovation create fragmentation....And there is a lot in the mobile space. This innitiative also: is it a wat to solve fragmentation or another different path?

At the end of the day, for developers, this will be another platform to support!
