The question what platform we should support is very much a function of
what application we have for such a platform. What we have in our projects
is a solution waiting for a problem. So when we find a solution,
consequently a platform we do not support yet, the next question to ask is:
does it fit our mission statement.. ie sharing in the sum of all knowledge.
When it does and, when an analysis finds that it is worth our while to
spend money and time on it, mwe should. Otherwise, it can be left to people
who build on top of what we have.
So when there are a few thousand glassheads, they wear an experimental
platform and are likely to have ample opportunity to get to our data
anyway... so certainly not for now. Large displays are used a lot and they
then ARE what people use.. Given that it is the same problem as with a
phone or tablet (scaling) it makes sense to consider this..
Application, application.. and obviously what we aim to achieve decides
the platform we support I would say.

Following up on Lila's Wikimania keynote:
what platforms and devices
should we have in mind when making decisions today or in the near future
about Wikimedia content creation and delivery?
*Large format displays?
*Health monitoring devices?
*Smart homes and buildings?
*Computer-led education systems in classrooms and remote learning?
*Driverless or semi-driverless cars?
*GPS-enabled devices of all sizes?
*Artificially intelligent consumers of Wikimedia content?
I would be interested in hearing others' thoughts.
