Cute - Doing dynamic programming to optimise the selection of user interface
modules used to deliver content to a variety of devices. Optimise for
minimum keystrokes.
This is not a technology I am looking forward to working with. Getting
something to display in 2 browsers on 2 platforms on screens 800x600x16 is
difficult enough.
Trying to create a mechanism whereby the same content (transformed, of
course) can be made to work on devices with 100x60x1 screens, telephone
keypads and 9.6Kbit bandwidth through devices with 320x200x16 screens,
stylus and/or keyboard, 9.6-64Kbit+ bandwidth, and on to 800x600x16 etc etc
with 56K modems etc etc. Not fun at all. It just wont work. Sorry. You are
just going ot have to have a couple of departments full of people - one for
the small screen experience and one for the big screen experience.

Subject: WAP White Paper

A while back I posted something about a white paper on wireless development.
Some of you showed some interest in reading it. I am looking forward to
hearing your constructive critisims as I know that there are a lot of you on
this list who know a lot more than I do.
With that said, this is the preliminary draft. Please send me your thoughts
on it.
