Get ready for a brand-new wave of computing, and yes, this will affect how we market over the Internet. Microsoft is letting people know that it is ready to move forward on a computer screen that looks like a coffee table…but more importantly, where you can move objects and images around like pieces of paper on the surface, plus manipulate them (rotate, enlarge, merge, etc.) Watch the Microsoft Surface: Hands-on First Look video.
It’s a very small leap before web programmers will be designing websites with elements that can be manipulated in this fashion. For instance, if you like this blog post, you might wish to place it in a collage or flip-folder on your coffee table along with my other posts that you really like. Or you might want to rotate it to be read by your business partner sitting on the other side of the table. Or you might want to zap it (through no specific connection) onto a portable digital storage to bring it along with you, without having to copy and paste and save with a new filename.
From an SEO perspective, we might have to start considering that a web page might not be the same to everybody viewing. Already there are ways to filter our most ads, most pop-ups and all images. But people could set criteria for what they do and do not want to see, and SEO might be about how to reach the most number or the most targeted of visitors to the website.Written by David Leonhardt
