All readers of TR and TR.com are invited to stop by my new blog at http://wwww.continuousblog.net, which I’ve launched as a sort of preview and companion to a Technology Review feature article I’m writing for an issue later this summer. It’s all about the new level of social connectivity that’s arising through the convergence of mobile devices, virtually ubiquitous wireless access, and next-generation Web services. (I’m calling this phenomenon “continuous computing”). I’ll be using the blog to highlight interesting news about social computing, but even more important, I want to invite other folks to add their own ideas and critique mine. Hope to see you there!
