This blog is a forum to explore a variety of technical topics. I do not attest to being an expert at anything. My primary motivation is the journey of learning.

A primary application being pursued is the development of a prototype application that implements the portal side of a message-based cell phone Internet browser. The underlying idea is to use the cell phone keypad and display to extend the reach of the portal’s Internet connection, browser, monitor, keyboard and mouse. In the long term, there is probably not much need for this kind of application, as I expect that Internet-enabled phones and reasonably priced access plans should be available as a commodity “soon”. In the short term, this application will be able to provide access to the Internet above and beyond what is already available via commercial SMS portals. I expect that it will provide freedom to browse, especially mobile formated web sites without the associated costly data charges.
