Re: My 2 Cents
@AbeG, i think that when it comes to providing information, a bit of healthy caution is... well... healthy. At the same time, the only way to move forward on these kinds of projects is collabration. Fingers crossed that more of that sort of thing starts to happen.

Re: Do Developers Know?
@SaneIT, i agree that mobile is here to stay--and there's no sense trying to stop it. You might was well try to hold back the ocean.

Re: My 2 Cents
@Hailey, if only I had the background in programming. 

As for potential concerns, I suppose some companies might be concerned about exposing too much information about what set of online resources they use.  However, the information that a given company submits would be anonymous.  A side benefit might be that this data would function as an unofficial survey or poll.

Re: Do Developers Know?
Yes it is a larger conversation but I see it everywhere now, mobile devices are so common place and are used so often that they are just part of daily life.  Trying to keep them out of a company is a losing battle.  I even see them sitting next to the registers at my local grocery store.  I'm positive that cashiers can not use them while they have customers in line but the phones sit out ready to go as soon as there is a lul.  The always on and always connected society isn't going away soon and the younger generations will only be more connected.

Re: Do Developers Know?
@SaneIT, that's a much larger conversation--but definitely the younger generation has a different attitude around technology and that's going to totaly change our technology landscape.

Re: Do Developers Know?
I realized just how tightly ingrained technology is in the lives of the younger generations when I passed a school bus stop full of high school aged kids and every single one of them was looking down at a cellular device.  To them even with other humans around the mobile device is still their go to communications method.  It struck me as odd at first but then it settled in that they are used to being connected via cellular devices 24/7 so it doesn't change when they could just put the devices away and talk to someone.

Re: Do Developers Know?
@SaneIT, all true and its going to get more complex as you get into generational differences. YOunger people have had technology ingrained into their lives since day 1 and that's bound to change the dynamice (She says dating herself).

Re: Do Developers Know?
It is an odd balancing act, on one hand you have to be flexible enough to let people be comfortable using technology but on the other you have to have tight enough controls not to lose data or open up large holes in your security policies.  Computing is becoming part of everyday life and it's only going to get more tightly ingrained, those who plan well now will have less pain later.

Re: My 2 Cents
and eduation and learning are at teh very bottom... (Thanks for the fun chart).  I look at that list and there are very few categories that are really critical... guess it's time to do more user education.

Re: My 2 Cents
The most popular and profitible apps are games.  I think the game mindset and the need to be entertained leads to some recklessness. Security be damned.
