Mobile or Desktop

The following web pages describe some of the underlying concepts involved in thinking about the potential relationship between the Mobile Web and the Web as displayed through a Desktop PC.

About StayGoLinks
StayGoLinks deals particularly with the interaction between the Internet Desktop world and the Mobile world. The exciting potential of mobile technology creates many opportunities and many challenges. In thinking about the opportunities and challenges, the ideas driving the creation of this blog were formed.  Just one example is that although there has been a  recent advancement in web technology infrastructure for cell phones, the traditional web backbone for standard desktop PCs (and corporate internet) is still far better equipped to handle services which have higher latency and bandwidth requirements (and guaranteed services levels) than what the current 3G infrastructure for smart phones can reliably provide today. 
URI (Uniform Resource Identifier)
Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs) are short strings that identify resources in the web: documents, images, downloadable files, services, electronic mailboxes, and other resources. They make resources available under a variety of naming schemes and access methods such as HTTP, FTP, and Internet mail addressable in the same simple way.
The One Web Principle
The One Web principle requires that content be accessible on a range of devices irrespective of differences in presentation capabilities and access mechanism. It ensures that content provided by accessing a URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) yields a thematically coherent experience when accessed from different devices
Adaptation Or Alternation
Adaptation is a process of selection, generation or modification that produces one or more perceivable units in response to a requested uniform resource identifier in a given delivery context. Alternation is a process whereby users seeking a certain content are redirected to a URI appropriate to their device.
The Multi-Web Practice
To ensure there are a greater population of web pages suitable for Mobile devices, website owners are encouraged to create associated web pages that will give good user experiences in several of the most popular devices. This is the Multi-Web Practice.
AGI (Array of Graphic Identifiers)
An AGI (Array of Graphic Identifiers) defines a ?point in Internet space? for a group of associated web pages. If only a series of URIs is involved, then this can be represented by a vector of the URIs, normally denoted by the following expression, (U1, U2, .., Un, .., UN). A vector is the simplest example of an array. The term array is used in this definition since the array format has functional advantages in more complex situations.
LURI (Location Uniform Resource Identifier)
For any web page identified by a URI (Uniform Resource Identifier), an associated web page identified by a LURI (Location Uniform Resource Identifier) can be created. The LURI web page contains a minimum number of standard location parameters and is visible on the smallest mobile device, such as a cell phone. The same LURI web page is applicable for all the URIs associated with that same physical location (i.e. a One-to-Many relationship).
