Next week it will be absorbed into the main publications stream of ACM. "Ubiquity," of course, comes from the Latin word for "everywhere"- and stands in contrast to "Utopia," another word coined from the Latin (by St. Thomas More) meaning "nowhere." Unlike utopian pie-in-the-sky visions, Ubiquity has always tried to stay focused ambitiously on The-Future-As-We-Already-See-It-Happening. This "Future-Present-Tense" is happening right in front of our eyes, in an information-rich world of embedded computing, embedded information, and embedded knowledge - along with embedded tensions. When you get some time, go into the Ubiquity archives and refresh your memory of what we've done: for example, take a second look at my own interviews with leaders in information science and technology, or re-read the many provocative articles we've published on every topic under the sun. (There's that old Ubiquity theme again, rearing its ubiquitous head.) You'll be impressed. And I think you'll be just as impressed with this, our final issue.
