    • Situated Social Software
      • Create new connections
      • Serendipitous encounters
      • Familiar strangers
    “ A stranger is just a friend I haven’t met yet.” - Will Rogers
  • Space vs. Place
    • Re-place-ing space (Harrison & Dourish, 1996)
      • Space is the opportunity; place is the understood reality
      • We are located in “space”, but we act in “place”
      • Appropriate behavioral framing
    • Location-based services (locative media)
      • Who / what is nearby? Maybe I’ll go there…
    • Place-based services
      • Who / what is here? Maybe I’ll make contact …
  • Online vs. Offline
    • Effort vs. impact
      • “ We want communication to cost something because that cost signals that we value the other person, that we value them enough to spare our time and attention.”
      • danah boyd, “Valuing efficiencies & unreliability”
    • Virtual world vs. real world
      • Virtual protests vs. WatchJeffersonCounty.org
    • Taking it to the streets (or the cafés)
      • Being present, showing up, being counted … & counting
