The golden triangle no me thinks a golden square

Interesting post looking at mega trends in web tech sector stating  The three current big megatrends in the web/tech sector are mobile, social, and real-time. being a triangle http://www.avc.com/a_vc/2009/10/the-golden-triangle.html actually I would add a fourth of maybe even a fifth to make golden square or a golden pentagon
  1. mobile,
  2. social,
  3.  real-time.
  4. Location aware
  5. context aware 
A while ago I described location awareness (GPS) as the next Utility I think we now have that and context awareness is the fifth utility  .

I would contend that mobile and location aware are one and the same, or at least not nearly so important separately as they are in combination.

I guess one could argue that mobile+social+location = context but I know what you are getting at.

You are hinting at what Jeremiah Owyang called the Intention Web - A device constructs and operates in what it has constructed as your context
