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 file-oriented approach, especially when used in a ubiquitous computing environment, where data producers and consumers can be distributed 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 manipulation model.
