Description

This presentation is being shared as a Core Conversation at 2014 SXSW Interactive: http://schedule.sxsw.com/2014/events/event_IAP24245. Many of us carry smartphones wherever we go. Increasingly, we are leaning on them as active and passive gathering devices of data and images. Google Glass and other recording devices bring the question further front and center—how is our recording and perpetually digitally checking in affecting our everyday lives? How are those check-ins and recordings shifting our being "present" in our shared Now and Here? Are we increasingly taking the opportunity to be digitally Elsewhere and not Present? How can we design locations and events to engage with a smartphone-embracing public?
