This presentation is being shared as a Core Conversation at 2014 SXSW Interactive: http://schedule.sxsw.com/2014/events/event_IAP24245. Many of us carry smartphones wherever we go. Increasingly, we are leaning on them as active and passive gathering devices of data and images. Google Glass and other recording devices bring the question further front and center—how is our recording and perpetually digitally checking in affecting our everyday lives? How are those check-ins and recordings shifting our being "present" in our shared Now and Here? Are we increasingly taking the opportunity to be digitally Elsewhere and not Present? How can we design locations and events to engage with a smartphone-embracing public?

  • How are we Present if we are always checking in to other information and places? Are we shifting our energies to auto-documenting our activities through pictures and other actions to the detriment of the activity and connections that we are experiencing live?Photos outbound having a priority to live interactionSensory interruptions in local/socialFocus – closing off sensory input
  • Snapchat, Instagram, FlickrHow are we blowing up time and space through digital images and messages, blowing it up and turning it into shiftable bits of data so we are making different decisions with its Time and Place?
