`Personal' Communication is widely understood as offering the ability to communicate wireless. In our vision `Universal Personal Networking' (UPN) the goal is to communicate independent of place, time and language. Wireless networks and terminals enable the first and partly the second subgoal, but what is a solution for over-coming time-zones and language barriers? This can be intelligent servers using mail-boxes or adapting the communication medium (e.g. speech to text) as well as language translation by computers. Moreover can `personal' be the ability to adapt one's user interface to a personal intuitive one or to enable personal work groups over thousands of miles by collaborative networking.
