Summary

Mobile media#xE2;#xAC;#x1D;from mobile phones to smartphones to netbooks#xE2;#xAC;#x1D;is transforming our daily lives. We communicate, we locate, we network, we play, and much more through our mobile devices. In this book, Jason Farman shows how mobile technology has fundamentally altered our experience of everyday life. He argues that mobile media#xE2;#xAC;"s pervasive computing model, which allows users to connect and interact with the Web while moving across a wide variety of locations, has produced for a new sense of self for users, a new embodied identity that stems from virtual space and material space regularly enhancing, cooperating or disrupting each other. Farman explores everyday mobile media practices such as mapping, social networking, and gaming to demonstrate how pervasive computing is redefining both the way we experience and understand space and place. He also examines a number of new media-inspired art practices such as alternate reality games, flash mob performances, and location-based narratives that illustrate how mobile technology is creating virtual environments out of everyday, lived space.
