There is all sorts of interesting work here worth taking at look at, and I'll be presenting some related research at the Media in Action Conference in June.

In related news, I'm almost done revisions for an essay on the affective politics of urban computing and locative media for Ulrik Ekman's forthcoming book Throughout: Art and Culture Emerging with Ubiquitous Computing. And, for the last of my dissertation-related research, I've got a journal article currently under review. I'll post both pieces here as soon as I can.

Update 09/04/10: Serial Consign has posted an interview with locative media artist, scholar and educator Jeremy Hight that includes some interesting thoughts on technologically mediated spaces and narratives:

"We also are seeing what really excites me as a writer and researcher which is new ways to write and publish within maps and their augmentations, so not just locative narrative but even...a literary journal in the augmentation where Route 66 once ran or inside an immersive visualization of an abandoned building that is placed on its space in the map."
