Many commentators have declared that globalisation has already peaked, despite its role in the past year run of unprecedented successes worldwide in health, wealth, education and life expectancy. Certainly the contradictions of that success caught up with us in In the West, stagnant incomes among broad groups made them angry at elites who were bailed out after the global financial crisis. Frustrated voters have rejected more international integration.
Philippe Kahn June 9, Twenty years ago on June 11thI shared instantly the first camera-phone photo of the birth of my daughter Sophie.
Today she is a university student and over 2 trillion photos will be instantly shared this year alone.
Every smartphone is a camera-phone. Here is how it all happened inwhen the web was only 4 years old and cellular phones were analog with ultra limited wireless bandwidth.
Building the server service infrastructure: The server architecture that I had designed and deployed is in general the blueprint for all social media today: Store once, broadcast notifications and let people link back on demand and comment. In this architecture was key to scalability because bandwidth was limited and it was prohibitive, for example, to send the same picture to friends.
Today the same architecture is essential because while there is bandwidth, we are working with millions of views and potential viral phenomena. Digital cameras and cell phones in It was so successful that it had a car speaker kit with a modular plug that allowed for hands-free use of the phone in the car.
That becomes important as part of this invention Before June 11th I had the server-service infrastructure functional as I mentioned. I also had a Casio digital camera, a Motorola flip phone and a laptop.
The camera was designed to upload pictures to the laptop with a special cable. However, there was no practical way to connect the laptop to the StartTac and control batched jobs of for example, uploading a series of pictures to a cloud based system.
Yet the phone could send data at baud over U. The combination of the Casio Camera, the Toshiba laptop, and the Motorola StartTac were the prototype of a camera-phone that I rapidly integrated on a breadboard thereafter: When we arrived at the Sutter maternity center we had a nice, large private room, with a big desk.
We stayed and settled in. It was clear there was a hardware challenge in interfacing the phone to the laptop. I had written a control program on the laptop that uploaded pictures from the camera, used a modem and could upload them to the Service-Server-System with a tag as to which list of friends and family to notify.
My wife Sonia gave me some time because we were 18 hours early. About 2, friends and family received the picture around the world. No printing, no film, no paper, and no silver halide film.
Both Kodak and Polaroid went bankrupt and so did Motorola.
