As noted on the call today, "ubiquity" as used by the Ubiquitous Web
Activity is the goal that the web as a platform is available in diverse
environments, e.g. device and network contexts. The "ubiquitous web" is
a strategy of meeting that goal by standardizing supporting technologies
that enable delivery of web-based services to devices with diverse
capabilities, including the ability to access web-enabled services in
diverse service contexts (e.g. networking environments). This is
captured by the Ubiquitous Web Applications group as "extending the Web
to enable distributed applications of many kinds of devices including
sensors and effectors. Application areas include home monitoring and
control, home entertainment, office equipment, mobile and automotive".
