In this paper we argue in favor of remote data access based on the principle of abstract data types.This paradigm has inherent advantages over the traditional .le-oriented approach,especially when used in a ubiquitous computing environment,where data producers and consumers can be distrib ted and emerge dynamically. The ?Datlet ?,a mobile storage device that implements the proposed approach,is presented in detail.We also discuss how a datlet can be embedded in everyday objects to create hybrid information objects,leading to an intuitive information manip lation model.
