Hi all,

I'm glad to see our launch of theAWEsomeWEB.com [1] at ARE2012 has
created some frantic me-too activity. 

*waves and smiles to Martin & the wikitude team* 8)

So if you've been wondering why I've been so quiet over the last few
months it's because we've been working hard to develop all the ideas
I've been presenting about the Augmented Web since 2009 [2] into some
real working technology.

We're just about to release our Open Source javascript toolkit called
awe.js [3] that is the jQuery for the Augmented Web and I think you'll
really like how easy it makes it to create this whole new breed of web
apps.

I think all of the discussions we've been having in the standards groups
so far are really important but I also think it's time to crystalise a
lot of these discussion into some code that really works and some
example apps that show just what's really possible right now.

So it's obviously the right time for this Augmented Web discussion to
really start in earnest and if you're not across where it's up to then I
think you'll find that the sands are shifting under your feet!

It's time to peel back the old web and uncover the new world beneath.
