Reframing Space for Ubiquitous Computing By Chris Marmo
eBook (ePub): $0.00
Ubiquitous Computing is a project within human-computer interaction that aims to embed computers into everyday spaces. As computing has moved away from desktop paradigms and is increasingly designed... More > to operate ‘in the world’, the practice of ubiquitous computing has become heavily concerned with issues around space and place; particularly, with how technology fits in the relationship between people, space, and the understandings that bind them. Given the wider range of social and cultural contexts computational devices find themselves in, understanding the existing relationships between humans and their environments has become increasingly important to designers of technology. This in my PhD thesis dealing with these issues, in the context of an Australian National Park.< Less

Sul volgere della fine degli anni ‘80, quando l’utilizzo di un computer appariva ancora come un lusso riservato a poche persone specializzate, mentre iniziavano a farsi strada i primi... More > personal computer e il web si affacciava sul mondo per cambiarlo per sempre, Mark Weiser intuì subito l’importanza di quei cambiamenti. Insieme ai suoi collaboratori alla Xerox PARC si interrogò sul ruolo che le tecnologie digitali avrebbero acquisito nelle nostre vite quotidiane, immaginando scenari con strumenti estremamente complessi, allora impossibili da realizzare, così facili da usare da divenire invisibili alla nostra attenzione. L’elaborato prende in esame la teoria dell’Ubiquitous Computing, confrontando gli esplosivi progressi che sono avvenuti nel mondo dell’informatica con le ipotesi postulate venti anni fa, nel tentativo di interpretare le ultime innovazioni che si stanno affacciando nel campo della programmazione web, in risposta all’evoluzione degli smartphones con il loro sempre più vasto bacino di utenza.< Less

A Brief History of Home Computing, or 'Building a Better Mousetrap' for Home Computer Users By Earnest Long
eBook (ePub): $0.00
The writer was given a Home Computer nearly 30 years ago when a teenager. It was a games machine but he was intrigued by doing more such as word processing. And 15 years later he bought a PC. And... More > used it to write a novel. But what to do with his computer when he had written the last line of his novel? This is a book about how home PC's became the marketers' dream of being ubiquitous for everyone.< Less
Situated Technologies Pamphlets 1: Urban Computing and its Discontents By Adam Greenfield, Mark Shepard

(1 Ratings)
The Situated Technologies Pamphlet series, published by the Architectural League, explores the implications of ubiquitous computing for architecture and urbanism: How is our experience of the city... More > and the choices we make in it affected by mobile communications, pervasive media, ambient informatics, and other “situated” technologies? How will the ability to design increasingly responsive environments alter the way architects conceive of space? What do architects need to know about urban computing and what do technologists need to know about cities? Situated Technologies Pamphlets will be published in nine issues and will be edited by a rotating list of leading researchers and practitioners from architecture, art, philosophy of technology, comparative media study, performance studies, and engineering.< Less
What You Need to Know About Dates and Times in Computing By Mike Bain, Ryan Boucher, Ashley Rollke

Human Computer Interface for Children: Investigation into Software Design Factors By Farrukh Khan
eBook (PDF): $15.00
The number of children who have interactions with computing devices is likely to increase significantly as humanity moves into the ubiquitous computing age. Not only are these interactions likely to... More > be a part of the exploration of the world in which these children will live, but these interactions are also likely to be educational because they will assist the children to develop their cognitive abilities. Because children are not likely to explore a computing device out of a desire to use the device in order to accomplish a task as most adults will, the existing methodologies for the design of HCI interfaces for adults such as the GOMS methodology cannot be readily applied to a design for children. This paper takes a look at the software design factors associated with the design of Human Computer Interfaces for Children.< Less
