Scan my interest list and pick out the one that seems the most odd to you.

I'll explain it.

Then you post this in your journal so other people can ask you about your interests.

Context computing is an extension of the idea of "presence" into applications that are aware of the user - the time of day, their location, the device they are using - and then deliver functionality appropriate to the context of the user interaction.

Or in other words - software that responds to your needs, rather than forcing you to fit in with its requirements.

Remeberance agents, IRC bots and Personal Area Networks? That kind of thing, I guess?

Well, they're part of the basis of it. My approach to it comes from developing serivce architectures for mobile use, which need to be able to handle long, multi-device transactions, and to be able to operate in the context of limited UIs, deep UIs and 10ft UIs - and to be able to deliver an effective interaction model for all of them.

Fascinating stuff.
