"Over the last thirty years, computing has had more or less one trajectory: smaller and more powerful. But things are changing - the next tier of devices we need to reach out to are everyday objects in our lives that don't have touch screens, keyboards, or voice input - or sometimes any input at all. In my talk, I'll talk about nitrogen.js, a framework I've been working on to make it easier to build connected devices."
