Travelling without moving Pixelache / Matt Jones / 15.03.08 London:Helsinki DOPPLR DOPPLR DOPPLR Where next? Where next? Where next?

Hello! DOPPLR DOPPLR DOPPLR Hello there. I’m Matt Jones, and I’m a designer who amongst other Where next? things used to live and work in Helsinki for Nokia working on interface and interaction design. Where next? Where next?

DOPPLR DOPPLR DOPPLR Even though I’d love to participate more fully in PixelAche, I can’t Where next? be there today with you as I just got off a plane from NYC, and really don’t want to move for a while. Where next? Where next?

Availbot! DOPPLR DOPPLR DOPPLR So, for a little while I thought I would send a replacement. My Where next? Availbot! Where next? Where next?

DOPPLR DOPPLR DOPPLR The availbot is a small likeness of me that plugs into the USB port Where next? of a computer, and when I’m online or chatting to you, it would stand to attention. When I’m not it would fall slack to the table. This gives you some idea of the attention I’m giving our Where next? conversation, in the physical space you’re in. Where next?

DOPPLR DOPPLR DOPPLR The availbot was created by a London design consultancy called Schulze Where next? & Webb for a project I was running while I was Nokia. Perhaps as revenge they modelled it after a not particularly flattering picture of me! Where next? Where next?

Sorry... DOPPLR  DOPPLR DOPPLR But unfortunately I couldn’t send even a small plastic version of Where next? me there today. I really am travelling without moving anything atomic. Where next? Where next?

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow- mindedness.” DOPPLR Mark Twain DOPPLR DOPPLR So, should we stop travelling? I would say not, but we have to find we allmaximise the e!cacy So,pleasure of travel for minimum impact. travelling has it’s disadvantages, I think ways to know. But, are Where next? and we really going to stop doing it? I think not. Where next? Where next?

DOPPLR DOPPLR DOPPLR DOPPLR Where next? DOPPLR Where next? DOPPLR Where next? I’m a cofounder and lead designer on Dopplr, which is a Where next? social tool for optimising travel. Where next? Where next?

Travel = Broken DOPPLR DOPPLR Now, for most of us, it’s something quite di!erent. DOPPLR Could we do anything to make it a little better? We Where next? thought so. Where next? Where next?

DOPPLR DOPPLR 22 DOPPLR We wanted to engineer a little bit of this - cybernetic This growth in personal informatics I believe (with many others, as detailed in those books) will lead Where next? to many downsides - seen and unforeseen - but also a large upside, in the increase of serendipity serendipity. in the world... (poster from ICA exhibition 1968) Where next? Where next?

“Serendipity is looking in a haystack for a needle and discovering a farmer's daughter.” Julius Comroe Jr. DOPPLR DOPPLR DOPPLR This is my favourite definition! Could we create a system Where next? that increased the happy little coincidences in your life as your travel through the world, and as a result help you Where next? optimise your travels. Where next?

DOPPLR DOPPLR DOPPLR I love this - I took it some years back at a museum in Sydney, Australia. For me it Where next? sums up what we really do with computers most often... Make models of things so we can understand them better and moreover, spin them round, poke and prod them until we find some optimal state. Where next? Where next?

DOPPLR DOPPLR DOPPLR DOPPLR and the past of an individual This diagram shows the ‘lightcone’ of the future is about the future, which you can’t Where we’re called Dopplr - alluding to the doppler effect as next? DOPPLR ‘observer’ - Dopplr is about what happens if you have this view - and take it social. The ability to remodel and optimise your travel plans based on those of automate (yet) DOPPLR others. That’s why Where next? next? Where things approach and recede from you. Where next? Where next? Where next?

DOPPLR Martin Hilpoltsteiner | http://www.recreating-movement.com DOPPLR via http://www.kottke.org/08/02/time-merge-media DOPPLR If we can make models of our future paths through space Where next? and time, and share them, we can see them in new ways optimise them. Where next? Where next?

DOPPLR DOPPLR DOPPLR So, let’s take a very quick look at it for those who haven’t Where next? come across it yet Where next? Where next?

DOPPLR DOPPLR DOPPLR Here’s the main view I see once I’m logged in - it’s a very Where next? simple report of my upcoming trips Where next? Where next?

DOPPLR DOPPLR DOPPLR This is a very important view - your journal of activity on Where next? Dopplr, showing the flows of information from you and your connections on Dopplr. Where next? Where next?

DOPPLR DOPPLR DOPPLR Each trip is the central ‘social object’ of Dopplr... Here’s my trip page for Where next? IxDA08 in Savannah, Georgia - aggregated here are nice things like the flickr pictures I’d taken that trip, notes by me and friends of mine and stats about travel here. But the main thing to look at is the ‘Coincidences’ block - showing me the other people I share information with on Dopplr who were going to be Where next? there. Where next?

DOPPLR DOPPLR DOPPLR We’re really happy we’ve been introduce this new Where next? feature - It’s in Beta at the moment and we’ll be releasing it fully very shortly. Where next? Where next?

DOPPLR DOPPLR DOPPLR This uses AMEE to calculate approximate values for the Where next? carbon dioxide expended in your travels, and allows you to visualise this against your trips. Where next? Where next?

DOPPLR DOPPLR DOPPLR Here’s a closer look, showing how you can interrogate Where next? this ‘carbon journal’ to understand the impacts of longer and shorter trips. This is the very first, most Where next? basic version of what we want to do with this. Where next?

DOPPLR Scales, not diet... DOPPLR DOPPLR We’re not currently linking through to things like Where next? carbon offsets. We prefer to leave actions like that up to individuals. We’re the weighing scale not the diet... Where next? Where next?

DOPPLR DOPPLR DOPPLR “Personal Informatics” already guide us in other efforts Where next? to ‘live better’ - by visualising behaviour and creating feedback loops. Where next? Where next?

DOPPLR DOPPLR DOPPLR We’d really like to design a ‘win state’ that encouraged Where next? thoughtfulness about travel and resources. For instance the default setting of the Toyota Prius dashboard Where next? showing MPG, not MPH encouraging the ‘game’s win state’ to be lowering the MPG... Where next?

FTW! DOPPLR DOPPLR DOPPLR We’d really like to design a ‘win state’ that encouraged Where next? thoughtfulness about travel and resources.

DOPPLR DOPPLR DOPPLR We’re starting small... Where next? Where next? Where next?

DOPPLR DOPPLR DOPPLR Really thought there’s no environmental alternative than Where next? to travel less, but we would like to help people make the travel they do count. Coincidences can trim trips. We want tonext?this helpful fuzziness in both time and Where add space to allow people to optimise their trips so that Where next? perhaps they can reduce them.

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” DOPPLR Marcel Proust DOPPLR DOPPLR So - our hope that is through examining travel through new eyes we can forge a new, responsible, Where next? sustainable and pleasurable golden age of travel.
