Gerry Gaffney interviews Adam Greenfield on "everyware", or ubiquitous computing, and its wide-reaching implications. (June 2010.)
A few weeks ago on Spark, contributor Jonathan Gifford brought us inside the Cognitive Cities Conference in Berlin. One of the key people he met there was Adam Greenfield. Adam is founder and managing director of the urban-systems design practice Urbanscale and he thinks a lot about the future of the networked city, something he’s called urban computing.
Part 2 of the conversation with Adam Greenfield. This conversation was recorded the day after Barack Obama won the US Presidential election.
Thanks to AG for being so generous with his time and for Medialab-Prado for letting us use their office.
This talk will discuss where ubiquitous computing is today, some changes we can already see happening, and how we can begin to think about the implications of these technologies for design, for business and for the world at large.
