Abstract
Pervasive computing, with its focus on users and their tasks
rather than on computing devices and technology, provides
an attractive vision for the future of computing. But, while
hardware and networking infrastructure to realize this vi-
sion are becoming a reality, precious few applications run
in this infrastructure. We believe that this lack of applica-
tions stems largely from the fact that it is currently too hard
to design, build, and deploy applications in the pervasive
computing space.
In this paper, we argue that existing approaches to dis-
tributed computing are flawed along three axes when ap-
plied to pervasive computing; we sketch out alternatives
that are better suited for this space. First, application data
