Mobile devices are now globally networked and speak the language of the city (SMS, Bluetooth, MMS etc.).? They are urban processors that enable entirely new participatory urban lifestyles and create novel mobile device usage models involving open authoring, sharing, and remixing of new or existing urban technologies marked by participation.? Participatory Urbanism allows individuals to become proactive in their involvement with their city, neighborhood, and urban self reflexivity by providing mobile-device-centered hardware and software toolkits for non-experts to become authors of new everyday urban objects, collective needs based dialogue tools and data visualizations.
This talk will present work in the area of Urban Computing, address the shift in mobile device usage from communication tool to “personal-super-computer-radio- station-with-sensors” and expose the impact of Participatory Urbanism with the design of? mobile tools and architectures for collective authoring, sharing, and remixing content.
