    Hi Ed,

    I was at the IBM Worklight Boot Camp at IBM Denmark last week and it looks like you got something useful. As a Notes developer I recognize patterns from XPages development.

    I have one thing that would be interesting to get your view about. Is it not wrong to thing about mobile computing to be centered on a specific device? I question why I must have a specific device to be able to get my content/features. In the future I see myself pick up any device and by some authentication method my data and features will be made available for me as long as I use that device.

    Of course this takes away some of the branding values for companies like Apple, but other values will replace it.

    I miss your voice in Notes/Domino but wish you all best.

    Hi Ed,

    Do you have information about using Domino/Notes data as source for Worklight applications ? Been asking around on twitter/forums/IBM etc, but no luck so far..

    @1 My experience thus far, one of the reasons people tell us they appreciate Worklight from a developer perspective is that the platform takes care of delivery for the form factor. So in fact the developer should have to think less about the particular device and focus more on the application layer. I think your vision is the right one.

    @2 This presentation is a useful one:$file/MobileDev_WorklightDomino.pdf
