I'm not a prophet, I have no clue what will be after graphical interfaces. But 
some things we already see today emerging: speech for starters. Another 
example are all this Virtual Reality stuff which is not graphical in the sense 
of a GUI. Our phones notifies through vibration. We have smart watches 
interacting through sensors with the body. All without a GUI.

There is a world beyond GUI. Things relevant to our users. Things relevant to 
privacy. I want KDE to be there, to give secure and privacy aware solutions 
also on future interaction patterns and not be limited by saying we only do 
GUI.

Cheers
Martin
