A New Book about Mobile Media


Rowan Wilken and Gerard Goggin just published “Mobile Technology and Place”, a book about the interactions between mobile media technologies and issues of place. This book will be crucial to my research project (about how location-based services may affect our way of receiving and exchanging information in public/urban places and how it can enhance the spread of news) and for all those interested in the transformations provoked by location-based services in public and urban places. In this sense, I highlight the chapter five “The Urban Dynamics of Net Localities: How Mobile and Location-Aware Technologies are Transforming Places”, written by the researchers Eric Gordon and Adriana de Souza e Silva. However, it has been hard to get the book. It costs 125$ and it is “temporarily out of stock” on the Amazon.
