SENSEable City
"The real-time city is now real! The increasing deployment of sensors and hand-held electronics in recent years is allowing a new approach to the study of the built environment. The way we describe and understand cities is being radically transformed - alongside the tools we use to design them and impact on their physical structure." and in particular the flickr tourism project: http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/freeabs_all.jsp?arnumber=4653470

Herman Miller - for Business - Programmable Environments
via Jennifer Magnolfi at ETech "What if our buildings could respond to change as easily as we do? What if buildings never became obsolete, but instead could keep up with our own speed of adaptation and change? What if they were Always Building? Could technology reinvent our environments? If our habitats were programmable, what would we ask of them?"

When can i get these..."Siftables are cookie-sized computers with motion sensing, neighbor detection, graphical display, and wireless communication. They act in concert to form a single interface: users physically manipulate them - piling, grouping, sorting - to interact with digital information and media. Siftables provides a new platform on which to implement tangible, visual and mobile applications."

Manifesto of Open Disruption and Participation by Eric Paulos
Eric Paulos manifesto: We must change our mantra: “not usability but usefulness and relevancy to our world, its citizens, and our environment" We have the power to create an entirely new form of citizen volunteerism, community involvement, and participation. We need to think big impact – outside of our immediate world of academic ubiquitous computing.

7.5th Floor » Blog Archive » On Urban Attractiveness
A city’s attractiveness is determined by a wide range of elements based on their own wealth, security (i.e. The Safe City By Leo van den Berg), history, cultural assets, and excellent landscape, measured with quantitative data such as in Richard Florida’s work and the indexes of Mercer, and the UN’s State of the World’s Cities, Quality of “Business” Life.

The next development of the net: the internet of things | Technology | The Guardian
Sometime between now and 2010, the internet is poised to reach beyond virtual space and take root in the physical world. According to many futurist thinkers, almost every object you can see around you carries the possibility of being connected to the internet. This means that your domestic appliances, your clothes, the books on your shelves and your car in the driveway may one day soon be assigned a unique IP address, just as both computers and web pages are assigned them today, to enable them to talk to each other.

Detecting earthquakes with laptops | Shake it all about | The Economist
IF YOU drop your laptop computer, a chip built into it will sense the acceleration and protect the delicate moving parts of its hard disk before it hits the ground. A group of researchers led by Jesse Lawrence of Stanford University are putting the same accelerometer chip to an intriguing new use: detecting earthquakes. They plan to create a network of volunteer laptops that can map out future quakes in far greater detail than traditional seismometers manage. [via olivier, thanks!]

Tracking productivity in the workplace | Every move you make | The Economist
Each badge is fitted with a set of motion-sensors, a microphone, a microprocessor and a radio transceiver that allow it to sense and broadcast back to base a person’s location, the direction he is moving in if walking, the movements of his body if he is stationary, and the timbre and inflection of his voice if he is talking—together, of course, with the length of the conversation and the identity of the other party if he, too, is a badge-wearer.

UPS uses GPS to "minimize the number of left turns... reduces idling which in turn lowers fuel consumption... multiply it across 88,0000 vehicles making nearly 15 million deliveries every day during the course of a year, it adds up."

Workshop on the Issues of Designing and Evaluating Ambient Information Systems :: Conference on Pervasive Computing
Ambient information systems (which include ambient, peripheral, glance-able, and subtle displays) are non-invasive and provide useful information while blending smoothly into our surroundings. These technologies are meant to be minimally attended and perceivable from outside the range of a person's direct attention, providing pre-attentive processing without being overly distracting. Examples range from large ubiquitous public displays to small bouncing icons on the Macintosh's dock.
