Bio:Founder of locative media site headmap and former head of strategy and communications at Mathengine [real time game physics] an informal guerilla (distributed) think tank Headmap examines the social implications and applications of location aware devices, augmented social networks, wearable computers, thinking tools and semantic network interfaces.
“We see wearable computing, retinal displays, distributed wireless mesh networks and semantic web standards as the foundation of an outside internet. The space, the social network, thinking tools and the network interface in the same field of view. The boundaries between what is interior and what is exterior intersecting tangibly in front of your eyes.
One short term pragmatic theme then is that we want to make it easy for people to publish and share information about the location of things and the spatial associations connected with thoughts.”
