This paper presents a new paradigm for network computing over the Internet called universal personal computing, where mobile users can access computing resources, network services, and personalized computing environments anywhere using any available terminals. The user and system requirements are defined. Following an object-oriented approach, we identify and define the mobile objects in this computing environment. The network architecture incorporating these mobile objects, and the mobile object control strategies are introduced. Modifications of connection set up procedures between user application programs to enable addressing based on a global user identity are considered. An agent-based personal computing model to facilitate service mobility is briefly discussed
