Urban Tapestries.

Urban Tapestries‘public authoring in the wireless city’. Basically a research project looking at the impact of annotating the world via online and mobile wireless technologies.


Well imagine that you are hungry and want to eat out after a concert. You would be able to whip out your smartphone, wave it at a nearby restaurant and receive a slew of user reviews and comments about that eatery and nearby ones which might be more suitable. After you’ve feasted, you might want to add to the database by inputting your own review and suggestions. Eventually over time, you get quite a powerful dataset for the public to share.
