Reimagining Ubiquitous Computing: A Conclusion

Show Summary Details


This chapter seeks to articulate a clear framework for thinking about the kind of interdisciplinary engagements that this book exemplifies, and to build on that framework and point to some fruitful areas for ubicomp’s next twenty years. In other words, it outlines some of the characteristics of a new ubicomp agenda. This agenda should be read alongside and as a complement to such works as Adam Greenfield’s Everyware (2006), Malcolm McCullough’s On Digital Ground (2004), and Bruce Sterling’s Shaping Things (2005).
