RE: <nettime> Mapping territory


Long-time reader, first time poster!  Today I sense some overlap of
research interests and would like to add something of my own.

RESONANCES AND EVERYDAY LIFE: UBIQUITOUS COMPUTING AND THE CITY 
Anne Galloway
http://www.purselipsquarejaw.org/mobile/cult_studies_draft.html

Abstract:

Ubiquitous computing seeks to embed computers into our everyday lives in
such ways as to render them invisible and allow them to be taken for
granted, and social and cultural theories of everyday life have always
been interested in rendering the invisible visible and exposing the
mundane. Despite these related concerns, social and cultural studies
have been almost entirely absent in discussions of the design of
ubiquitous technologies. This essay seeks to introduce researchers in
both fields to each other, and begin to explore the ways in which
collaboration might proceed. By exploring mobile and ubiquitous
technologies currently being used to augment our experiences of the
city, this paper investigates notions of sociality, spatialisation and
temporalisation as central to our experiences of everyday life, and
therefore of interest to the design of ubiquitous computing.

Cheers,
Anne
