A modest proposal: the Continuous Client -- Engadget
This is basically extending the thin client/Sun Global Desktop scheme to mobile phones, at least for a rough prototype. The next step is tweaking the OS to actually have a mobile device UI paradigm rather than a desktop OS (The current Achilles heel of windows 7 Tablets). Android for PC (and perhaps ChromeOS) is a start in the right direction. Combine this with a mixed homogeneous cluster OS concept, where the core OS is in the cloud, syncing with devices as they come back from being offline, and you get close to this Continuous Client concept.

…My heart’s in Accra » The Cute Cat Theory Talk at ETech
Any sufficiently advanced read/write technology will get used for two purposes: pornography and activism. Porn is a weak test for the success of participatory media - it’s like tapping a mike and asking, “Is it on?” If you’re not getting porn in your system, it doesn’t work. Activism is a stronger test - if activists are using your tools, it’s a pretty good indication that your tools are useful and usable.
