This is an analysis of the changes the concept of interface is going through in the shift from the currently dominating virtuality paradigm of use to two new use paradigms, namely ubiquity and mobility; an analysis of the concomitantly shifting role of symbols in relation to the user and to the world; ending with an attempt to identify and analyze important research issues in the new situation that arises, two of which are to better understand the various ways different kinds of interface symbols can link to their real-world referents, and how to combine tracking reality with supporting the user's own thinking.
