"Wanderlust is an experimental location-based storytelling platform.

You can use Wanderlust anywhere in the world, as long as you're in the right type of place.

To begin a story, you might need to be at a bar, restaurant, cafe, or airport. And if the story moves to another location, that's where you'll need to go.

It's a new way of telling stories.

How does it work?

We use Foursquare's database of locations around the world and combine it with your phone's GPS to work out where you are.

Wanderlust also uses JQuery Mobile so it works on any smartphone without installation.

Why do I need Twitter?

We use Twitter to keep track of where you are in a story, no matter what device you're using. We promise we won't send out any posts from your account without your permission, and we certainly won't spam you or pass on your details!"

"Cabulous is a smartphone app that makes it fast, easy, stress-free, & fun for passengers & taxi drivers to connect…allows passengers to see exact location of nearby taxis & hail one w/ touch of a button. The driver, in turn, is able to visually track his or her fare with a smartphone application – even if that passenger decides to walk down the block or around the corner. Passengers can even add drivers to their “Favorites” list & spot them the next time they are driving nearby, a plus for drivers who want to build customer loyalty. What makes Cabulous different from the other cab apps? Others: (a) connect to old legacy dispatching systems (buggy!); (b) broadcast passenger locations all over the city (creepy!); (c) dial a dispatch phone number in your city (snore!).

Cabulous is NOT a booking system – it’s a giant electric thumb for hailing cabs in real-time on the street or from a café or other location…"

"# Imagine walking through a film, but it's happening on the streets you walk down everyday.

# Subtlemobs usually happen in public spaces.

# The audience listen to a soundtrack on headphones, a mixture of music, story and instructions.

# Sometimes they just watch the world, sometimes they perform simple scenes for each other

# This is invisible cinema, making films without cameras

# A subtlemob is not a flashmob

"Lethal (click opens iTunes) from Elany Arts takes a location from either the iPhone's built-in location services or a list of 300 cities or parks throughout the USA, then provides you with a "lethal index" number. This number ranges between 0 and 400, with 400 being an extremely dangerous location.

"We often think of mobile technologies simply in terms of their communication capabilities, but their increasing ability to trace our movements and collect information about the spaces through which we pass, can also make it easier for people to keep track of the places and things that matter most to them. From geo-visualisations and mapping mash-ups, to the mobile geospatial web and location-based services, people’s relationships to places (and each other) are changing."

"The last three years have fundamentally changed the way people understand their location and geography. Looking at interactive satellite imagery of our globe is now commonplace. The next three years will bring even more innovation, unleashing greater data and details allowing users to understand not only the greater planet around them but their own personal web of friends and locations that sit inside of it. Take the opportunity to explore these technologies, not only to learn more about planet Earth but also what your personal slice of it looks like – maybe soon in real-time."

PhD Dissertation | Anne Galloway - A Brief History of the Future of Urban Computing and Locative Media
"The dissertation builds on available sociological approaches to understanding everyday life in the networked city to show that emergent technologies reshape our experiences of spatiality, temporality and embodiment. It contributes to methodological innovation through the use of data bricolage and research blogging 1, which are presented through experimental and recombinant textual strategies; and it contributes to the field of science and technology studies by bringing together actor-network theory with the sociology of expectations in order to empirically evaluate an area of cutting-edge design."

The long here and the big now « Adam Greenfield’s Speedbird
"The “long here” part is, I think, a little easier to make out; we’ve already seen how easily we can lay a persistently retrievable history of the things that are done and witnessed there over any place that can specified with lat/long coordinates. Whenever I’ve used the phrase “anchoring subjectivities,” this is what I was thinking of: place now has visible depth in time.

What about “the big now,” though? It’s shorthand for the enhanced and deepened sense of simultaneity – of the world’s massive parallelism – that certain digital artifacts lend us. The most concrete example I can come up with is my experience of Twitter, which, like one of the great NYTE visualizations, though more subtly and expressively, quite clearly reveals the great waves of activity and slumber sweeping over the globe. A ten-minute interval may see reports of friends’ experiencing rush-hour frustrations in the Bay Area, dining out in New York, and late night dancing in London, a notable lacuna in pings from Brussels or Torino or Helsinki, and then the first groggily pre-caffeinated dispatches from Seoul and Tokyo. For me, at least, it’s been difficult to see my New York through quite the same eyes, when every time I get my phone out I feel the entire planet’s deeper rhythms working themselves out.

I’m willing to bet that these are among the factors which will do the most to bend and shape our experience of urban place in the next few years to come."
