Chock-full of timely meditations on what it is to be a body and an embodied self in an age of ubiquitous technical mediation, Throughout is the richest sort of lode. You'll nod, you'll jot down thoughts, you'll think of exceptions and argue back in the margins. A resoundingly useful resource. -- Adam Greenfield, Managing Director, Urbanscale This ground breaking collection is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the relationship between technology and culture in the next twenty years. The rich mix of approaches begins to define a field for understanding the world of pervasive media that is emerging out of ubiquitous computing. -- Jonathan Dovey, Professor, Digital Cultures Research Centre, University of the West of England
