A location aware web

A location aware web

Uma maneira simples de mostrar com as mdias locativas so instrumentos de funo ps-massiva: localizao, produo de contedo, distribuio aberta e colaborativa colocando em evidncias os trs princpios da cibercultura – emisso, conexo, reconfigurao. Trechos a partir do post de Chris Messina, “when location is everywhere“):

“Chris Messina has a great post about the upcoming location-aware layer on the internet. He starts off by mainly pondering how trivial access to a person’s location will change the way we design future applications. One paragraph in particular caught my eye:

If you imagine for a minute that the ubiquity of wireless-enabled laptops gave rise to the desire-slash-ability for more productive mobile work, and consequently created the opportunity for the coworking community to blossom; if you consider that the ubiquity of digital cameras and camera phones created the opening for a service like Flickr (et al) to take off; if you consider that the affordability of camcorders, accessibility of video on digital cameras, cell phones and built-in in laptops and iMacs, coupled with simpler tools like iMovie, lead to people being able and wanting to post videos to a service like YouTube (et al); if you look at how the ubiquity of some kind of device technology with [media] output lead to the rise of services/communities that were optimized for that same media, you might start to realize that a huge opportunity is coming for locative devices that make it easy to publish where you are, discover where your friends are, and to generally receive benefits from being able to inform third parties, in a facile way, where you are, where youve been and where youre going.” (via Go By Airship)
