  • Convergence of smartphone adoption means that the internet – the web – is much closer to the physical worldConnect people and devicesAd hoc mesh networksPeer-to-PeerNFCBumpFind People via Devices, do the mathGeolocation up to server. Calculate. Create Rules.Other inputs:Sound (Color)BluetoothEnhanced IP [unversities, etc.]ZuluTIme: [store based add ons to wifi routers]NFCNow, Yong Wang, a computer scientist at the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China in Chengdu, and colleagues at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, have used businesses and universities as landmarks to achieve much higher accuracy.These organisations often host their websites on servers kept on their premises, meaning the servers' IP addresses are tied to their physical location. Wang's team used Google Maps to find both the web and physical addresses of such organisations, providing them with around 76,000 landmarks. By comparison, most other geolocation methods only use a few hundred landmarks specifically set up for the purpose.

  • For those who grew up before MP3s, we may miss the days of browsing the stacks… every so often you would find something unexpected in the used bin - a rare Japanese import of a Pixies single with a B-side you’d never heard. SerendipityNow you go to itunes or amazon. It’s less fun. What about bar bets about stupid shit? Wikipedia solves itOne of the last frontiers of serendipity is being out in the wild, running into people, things, events. Like everything else, the signals are growingRunning into a fellow Iowan in Albania. Random. No longer
