Everyware by Adam Greenfield

Findability.org mentions a new, not-yet-released, book from Adam Greenfield, Everyware. Adam just did a talk at the East Coast IA retreat titled “Everyware: Planning for the user experience in ubiquitous computing” and described it thusly, “Everyday life—the domain of ubiquitous computing—is largely terra incognito for today’s interaction designers and information architectects, with their models based on serial, sequential interaction and one-to-one correlation between user and device. Web-based models of security, privacy, consent, navigation, and synchronous and asynchronous communication will, if deployed in an ecology of ubiquitous systems, lead at best to frustrating and clumsy user experiences. The time to start developing new models, metaphors and understandings is here.” Can’t wait!
