I get nervous when I think about how long it's taken community-oriented free software to have interfaces that resemble "could be comfortable on mobile" and how much more critical user freedom concerns will be when we're all wearing sensory-modifying wearable computing and how hard it will be for the FOSS world to adjust its software to comfortably work on augmented reality type systems

@cwebber one problem here is the overt and carefully engineered hostility of mobile platforms / systems to meaningful openness.

another is the general overall terribleness of mobile interfaces, which has led in turn to free software efforts at mobile-esque UI that are rife with bad imitations of an already-bad paradigm.

i'm pessimistic about all of this.
