In response to the rise of pervasive information technologies and the privatization of the public sphere, Situated Technologies Pamphlets 6, written by Marc Böhlen and Hans Frei, proposes hybrid architectural programs called MicroPublicPlaces (MPPs). MPPs combine insights from ambient intelligence, human computing, architecture, social engineering, and urbanism to initiate ways to reanimate public life in contemporary societies.< Less
Situated Technologies Pamphlets 5: A synchronicity: Design Fictions for Asynchronous Urban Computing By Julian Bleecker, Nicolas Nova
Paperback: $19.95

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? In the last five years, the urban computing field has featured an impressive emphasis on the so-called “real-time, database-enabled city” with its synchronized Internet of Things. In this pamphlet, Julian Bleecker and Nicholas Nova argue to invert this common perspective and speculate on the existence of an “asynchronous city.” Through a discussion of objects that blog, they forecast situated technologies based on weak signals that show the importance of time on human practices. They imagine the emergence of truly social technologies that through thoughtful provocation can invert and disrupt common perspective.< Less
Situated Technologies Pamphlets 7: From Mobile Playgrounds to Sweatshop City By Trebor Scholz, Laura Y. Liu

How are our experience of the city... More > and the choices we make in it are affected by mobile communications, pervasive media, ambient informatics and other “situated” technologies? In Situated Technologies Pamphlets 7, Trebor Scholz and Laura Y. Liu reflect on the relationship between labor and technology in urban space where communication, attention, and physical movement generate financial value for a small number of private stakeholders. Online and off, Internet users are increasingly wielded as a resource for economic amelioration, for private capture, and the channels of communication are becoming increasingly inscrutable. Liu and Scholz ask: How does the intertwining of labor and play complicate our understanding of exploitation?< Less

In Situated Technologies Pamphlets 9, Helen Nissenbaum and Kazys Varnelis initiate a redefinition of privacy in the age of big data and networked, geo-spatial environments. Digital technologies permeate our lives and make the walls of the built environment increasingly porous, no longer the hard boundary they once were when it comes to decisions about privacy. Cautioning that suffocating surveillance could lead to paralyzed dullness, Nissenbaum and Varnelis do not ask us to retreat from digital media but advance interventions like protest, policy changes, and re-design as possible counter-strategies.< Less

Each Situated Technologies Pamphlet is structured as a conversation between two leading researchers and practitioners from architecture, art, technology, and related disciplines. In Pamphlet 8, Christian Nold and Rob van Kranenburg articulate the foundations of a future manifesto for an Internet of Things in the public interest. Nold and Kranenburg propose tangible design interventions that challenge an internet dominated by commercial tools and systems. Through horizontally scaling grass roots efforts along with establishing social standards for governments and companies to allow cooperation, Nold and Kranenberg argue for transforming the Internet of Things into an Internet of People.< Less

A new generation of architecture that responds to building occupants and environmental factors has embraced distributed technical systems as a means and end for developing more mutually enriching relationships between people, the space they inhabit, and the environment. This pamphlet discusses key qualities of "responsive" architecture as a performing instrument that is both mutable and contestable.< Less

How are our experience of the city... More > and the choices we make in it are affected by mobile communications, pervasive media, ambient informatics and other “situated” technologies? The second volume in the series asks the question: what lessons can architecture learn from software development, and more specifically, from the Free, Libre, and Open Source Software (FLOSS) movement? Written in the form of a quasi-license, Urban Versioning System 1.0 posits seven constraints that, if followed, will contribute to an open source urbanism that radically challenges the conventional ways in which cities are constructed.< Less

With the ever so changing technological advancements that our society is blessed to have at this moment, many people have disregarded the importance of social contact and communication. After the use... More > of emailing, social networking, and texting have come into play, the need for handwritten letters have decreased as well as the need for social interaction. Many people nowadays have trouble speaking to one another during face-to-face conversations; however, their conversations are perfectly fine once they’ve sat themselves down in front of a monitor. Unfortunately, a genuine conversation is hard to find and hard to create. What’s worse is the fact that many people are rather shy and do not dare to approach one another for a simple conversation. Yet, communication still ends up as being the number one necessity for success in life. So what do you do when you cannot bring yourself to initiate a conversation with another individual? The answer is only one step and a word away.< Less
