The excitable crowd: characterizing social, mobile space

When I wrote the paper on women and mobility a few weeks ago, it put me on track to doing what I’d come to Yale to do. I wanted to look at mobile and ubiquitous technology from within a spatial, urban, architectural framework. For a variety of reasons, I’ve decided to pursue my Berlin and Ostalgie research as a smaller project, and the mobile technology and space project as my thesis.

With that in mind, I’m posting the chapter I just handed in for our end of year review. Parts of this come from the paper I posted a few weeks ago. Nobody offered comments, but I would really welcome yours.
