Welcome!

You came to a trend tracking website maintained by Sandor Nacsa from Hungary.

Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are fast changing from a computer-centered era of the past 60+ years into a new one based on an ICT cloud where the resources shared by everybody are behind the so called cloud covering smaller or bigger data centers, different hosting centers, or even servers in your closet connected to the Internet. All fueled by 3.5G/3.9G, SoC & reflectivity. See the links on the right sidebar:

- Connecting – Trends in UI, Interaction, & Experience Design [Documentary YouTube channel, Jan 23, 2013]

The 18 minute “Connecting” documentary is an exploration of the future of Interaction Design and User Experience from some of the industry’s thought leaders. As the role of software is catapulting forward, Interaction Design is seen to be not only increasing in importance dramatically, but also expected to play a leading role in shaping the coming “Internet of things.” Ultimately, when the digital and physical worlds become one, humans along with technology are potentially on the path to becoming a “super organism” capable of influencing and enabling a broad spectrum of new behaviors in the world.

Motivation for the film from Connecting [Jan 2, 2013] post by Mike Kruzeniski:

We imagined something similar to Gary Hustwit’s design documentaries, and began to wonder why there isn’t an Objectified for Interaction Design. The work that Interaction Designers are doing is so interesting, representing such a range of problems and perspectives, and most importantly, has such a broad impact on our daily lives, that it deserves being captured and discussed. So our goal became to capture how Interaction, UI, & User Experince Design is being practiced right now, the emerging problems, and trends in the field.

Broadband wireless is now over 58%, and smart phone prices have dropped to about $100 for an acceptable Android phone, and about $200 for a full-featured Android phone. Smart phones are now spreading like wildfire. About a year ago, there were less than 50M users, basically affluent or tech saavy users who were willing to pay $500 for a phone and $30 a month for 3G. But now, students, young white collar, and even blue collar workers are swarming into the smart phone market!

Consequently our clients are fast changing as well. You no longer need a fully equipped PC or notebook to serve your personal computing needs. As small device as the contemporary smartphone is sufficient to feel yourself empowered by the ICT cloud. We even had media tablets last year, like the pioneering Apple iPad, which are serving your cloud content consumption needs. And then all those classic devices, the PC, the notebook, the netbook etc., that you were accustomed to in the recent pre-cloud era, have just started to be transformed into something else to fit cloud authoring and consumption as well.

The authoring includes not only content in the classic sense, meant directly for human eyes, but significantly more capable software of a new kind that is operating in the cloud, aptly called Software as a Service (SaaS).

In fact this very website is solely relying on such an SaaS. It is reached via a URL http://lazure2.wordpress.com/ which means that it is supported by one of the leading content creation and consumption SaaS’ called WordPress.com from Automattic Inc. The subdomain name of lazure2 is just for making this website distinquishable among all other WordPress.com websites which are more than 15 millions.

WordPress.com has roots in the first decade of the 21st century of internet hosting. For this reason it is possible to not only track the trend of fundamental paradigm change towards cloud computing but also experience its simplest form by writing content on “Experiencing the Cloud” website.

We certainly may expect an exponential increase of more and more sophisticated SaaS’ written from the start for the cloud. We are tracking this trend as well.

  2. I didn’t think that. very exciting

    Great blog! Do you want me to help you to market it?

  4. great blog If you are the type to update your blog regulary, then you have gained one daily reader in me today. keep up the super work.

    • nacsa says:

      Thanks for appreciation.

      The regularity of my updates depends on the events and the whole idea as described in my very last reply below. I am trying not to miss anything related to my original intentions and do so in time.

      If I am not always succeeding with that it is for the very simple reasons of having limited time and paid service tasks interrupting even that time resource in a very unplanned way.

  5. folymyss says:

    Cупер статья.Очень хорошо и подробно вы описали, спасибо.

  6. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I imply, I know it was my option to read, but I actually thought youd have one thing attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you would fix if you happen to werent too busy on the lookout for attention.

    • nacsa says:

      My intention was neither to get praise from or dissappoint the readers of my trend tracking website. Nevertheless you are the first one to be disappointed after dozens of praises you could find around all my posts.

      In fact I’ve been surprised by the continued flow of praises. Even more so because the whole idea of this blog is just compile (vs. writing articles targeted for wide readership) information about events related to the strategically important umbrella of growing cloud computing growth within my own established framework of “fueled by 3.5G/3.9G, SoC & reflectivity”.

      With things like that it is always the case that there are people for whom neither cloud computing nor 3.5G/3.9G, SoC and reflectivity are relevant or important. You will nevertheless experience the consequences if not experiencing it already.

      Looking at your http://www.incomepitbull.com/ site intro sales pitch I certainly understand that you like “breakthrough information” of quite another type. One which brings you immediate return. Unfortunately my collection here is not like that and has not been intended to help people with that in return for some paid services. Sorry for that.

  7. I will add this blog to my favorites, it is great.

  8. asus g53jw says:

    Do you mind if I quote a few of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back to your website? My blog site is in the very same area of interest as yours and my visitors would certainly benefit from a lot of the information you provide here. Please let me know if this alright with you. Thanks a lot!

  9. It is the best time to make some plans for the future and it’s time to be happy. I have read this post and if I could I wish to suggest you some interesting things or tips. Maybe you can write next articles referring to this article. I want to read even more things about it!

  10. Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying
    your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any points for beginner blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.

    • any points for beginner blog writers?

      #1 Clear understanding of your intentions and goals with blogging. I mean not things like have a (hopefully) exponentially growing number of visitors or metrics like that because of such things are too general. I think my case is an example with “trend tracking” as defined in the second paragraph of the Welcome! page of this site. It is also unchanged from very beginning (almost 3 years now).

      #2 Use a well developed blogging service with an equally good writing tool. My choice was WordPress and Live Writer with which I am still very satisfied.

      #3 Select carefully the most suitable template for the given writing intentions and goals. You can compare this template with that of the USD 99 Allwinner as a good example. Even the customisation of the source template is very essential upto the point of how are you indicating your intentions and goals both for yourself (in order to stick to your originals etc.) and your readers certainly. On that site eg. the intentions and goals are described on the About page. I have a numerous other examples of my own: HTML5+svg[2]+css3+ecmascript5+domL2/L3, Szoftver aktualitások, KultúrKúra and szoclibek a néppártiak ellen, avagy fordítva
