Given that ambient culture is concerned with finding new ways of distributing work, can we meaningfully discuss ambient form? In practice, while ambient culture is highly diverse, it might be useful to attempt to sketch out a few broad approaches that often combine in different measures. One might be said to be concerned with the pursuit of what are often considered to be more passive ambient experiences, one with ambient ecologies (the economy of ambience), another with interactive ambient intelligences.
