The possibility of becoming a corporate nomadic wanderer, geographically far removed from the organization’s web of networks and computers, yet still able to link into this fixed topology via a plethora of small portable devices offers many advantages and promises new ways of working and balancing one’s working life. Wireless computing heralds a new way of working which has profound implications for the psychology of workers and the future organizational structures of our companies. We are beginning to see the evolution of a society where networks of workers, possessing a wide portfolio of skills, are supported by emerging technologies which help facilitate a new way of working. These mobile devices can also provide the gateway into a new world of rich information and entertainment, linking into the ever prevalent online services markets. The vision is especially appealing to vendors attempting to reach those that have not accepted the personal computer paradigm.
