    • Mobile vs. Situated
      • Mobile Social Software
        • Maintain existing connections
        • Ambient intimacy (Leisa Reichert)
        • Continuous partial friendship (David Weinberger)
      • 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
