A lot has changed in technology and interaction, and yet a lot has stayed the same. This talk will consider factors that have changed and not changed, and suggest ways in which the big changes should be exploited to address both old and new problems — ways in which we might be thinking differently about research challenges for interactive technology in this "new future".
