would like to welcome Joe Luedtke as the new author of the "Toward Pervasive Computing" column and thank Lee Capps for writing the column for the past year.

This month is the one-year anniversary of this column, "Toward Pervasive Computing."

At the start of 2003, we are still working "toward" pervasive computing. However, this topic remains as relevant now as it was a year ago. While the typical lifespan of an IT catch phrase or acronym may not even be a year, pervasive computing is here for the long haul. The reason is it is not just a catch phrase, but is, as Gartner terms it, a "megaforce" shaping the software industry.1
