Almost 80% of the young people who took part in the research said they felt safer having a mobile and that they had a better social life as a result. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/5358784.stm Wednesday, November 28, 2007 10

    • The Pew Internet and American Life Projects surveyed more than 1200 professionals in 2004 about their prediction of the next decade of the Internet. They saw a more ubiquitous Internet embedded in miniaturized devices, clothes, cars, appliances, and they thought that quot;these networked devices will allow greater surveillance by governments and businesses.quot; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RNJl9EEcsoE Wednesday, November 28, 2007 16
    • Facilitating arguably isolationist quot;conversationsquot; Wednesday, November 28, 2007 17
    • We meet and “friend” more and more people in a mobile world. At the same time individuals experience more and more isolation and anxiety. http://tinyurl.com/2w2k94 Wednesday, November 28, 2007 18
    • Sterling is aware of the netherworld of networked labor when he draws parallels to coal miners, clarifying that today's coal miners of sorts may well have pristine white skin. (They sit, type and stare at screens. All day, every day. It ends up hurting them. It hurts them in ways that are slow enough and subtle enough to steal up on them. Shaping Things 134) http://tinyurl.com/2nwnps Wednesday, November 28, 2007 19
    • A Vertigo of Choice Today, we are swamped with trivial choices, which plague us with anxiety and depression. Noise is shot at us with increasing speed. Every step you make, every breath you take-- you have to respond to one influx or the other. http://tinyurl.com/2zo3yl Wednesday, November 28, 2007 20
    • The more we teach this megacomputer, the more it will assume responsibility for our knowing. It will become our memory. Then it will become our identity. In 2015 many people, when divorced from the Machine, won't feel like themselves - as if they'd had a lobotomy. Kevin Kelly: http://tinyurl.com/2xogfc Wednesday, November 28, 2007 21
    • By the time they complete their A levels, ... children have racked up: 10,000 hours playing video games 200,000 emails and texts sent and received 10,000 hours of digital mobile phone use 20,000 hours of watching TV 500,000 TV adverts watched just 5,000 hours of book reading http://tinyurl.com/yobpmz Wednesday, November 28, 2007 22
    • The first time I saw internet addiction officially announced as a problem among China's youth was in an article about a December, 2006 report from the Central Committee of the Communist Youth League. The report estimated that more than two million Chinese children and teenagers were addicted to the internet. The situation was called a quot;severe social problem that could threaten the nation's future.quot; http://www.pewinternet.org/PPF/p/1199/pipcomments.asp Wednesday, November 28, 2007 23
    • Bullying by mobile phone “Mobile phones are a popular choice for bullies. Text messages provide complete anonymity. Many pay-as- you-go mobile phones can be bought over the counter and do not require proof of identity, nor is any record kept of the new owner. Calls made from these types of mobile phone are difficult to trace.” Wednesday, November 28, 2007 24
    • The context of the experience is hard to predict. http://tinyurl.com/2fzcmw Wednesday, November 28, 2007 25

    • When I walk through the streets of Brooklyn my cell phone gets short SMS reminders from the land of Google calendar that get me going. http://tinyurl.com/2b2769 Wednesday, November 28, 2007 29
    • Then I sit in the park or cafe and enjoy the availability of a free wireless network. Its node just communicated with my laptop, both are amenable to each other until there is a stronger commercial signal that may overwhelm them. This battle over free or for-pay wireless network matters- free networks set expectations. Why would I go to elsewhere when I can get access here for free? http://tinyurl.com/ysldw6 Wednesday, November 28, 2007 30

    • Tête-à-tête of things? A “thing-ly” takeover? Do you hear objects whisper to other networked objects? http://tinyurl.com/2ts2qe Wednesday, November 28, 2007 32
    • Networked objects are around and they make some things easier and they join our conversations by contributing data. We often attach affect to these networked things. How do all these things make us feel? Will children demand even more “screen time” from their parents? What would an emancipatory relationship with a networked object look like? Should we assume that there would be no exploitation of labor, no class differences, no poverty, no people without heath insurance, and no people without access to hardware or the network of networks in that near future scenario? What would a quot;unaligned alliancequot; of networked objects look like? http://tinyurl.com/28o5ff Wednesday, November 28, 2007 33
    • New fences in the public sphere(s) We already co-inhabit, co-perform in one world with all these networked objects. We experience the convergence of web technology, wireless networks and portable devices. http://www.ambientdevices.com/cat/images/GreenOrb_onwhite.jpg Wednesday, November 28, 2007 34

    • For the obscenely wealthy- Rem Koolhaas' Broadway Prada store offers a service that charges the object of your desire to your credit card merely by exiting the store with it. http://tinyurl.com/35hq5d Wednesday, November 28, 2007 38
    • The UPS delivery guy brings up that package from the gallery and I sign for it. I sign on a device that beams my signature right to the UPS mother ship. http://tinyurl.com/24foox Wednesday, November 28, 2007 39

    • http://openid.net/ Profile and registration data: How do we quantify and manage profile data across lots of different sites. This is your first/last name, email address, avatar, etc. All of these create your profile. Profile update push: I’ve updated something in my profile and now I would like to push it to all of the sites that use this data. New email address? Great, push it out to all of the sites (or IMHO - get it from on place all the time). http://tinyurl.com/26c36h Wednesday, November 28, 2007 56
