Bill Joy calls mobile Internet the 'here' web

When will there be more wireless Internet users than wired? Mid 2007 would be my guess.

Bill Joy is putting his money--or, more accurately, his VC firm's money--on the Web as the platform of the future.Joy, co-founder of Sun Microsystems and a driving force behind the creation of Berkeley Unix and Java, among other technologies, said the explosion in devices like cell phones, PDAs and other wireless gadgets connected to the Web is radically changing the technology industry.He calls that phenomenon the "here" Web, because the Internet is always "here, because you access it through a device you always carry."
