Re: The future of computing?
We never left the centralized-computing model. We added personal computing to it - probably an inevitable step, as it became technologically and economically feasible - but there's no driver to eliminate it, or even really reduce it significantly in absolute numbers, even if its portion of the marketplace shifts back and forth.
People who talk about the "PC revolution" are merely being myopic. Nothing was overthrown. A vacuum was filled; that's all.
