Mobile Junkies Reshaping Society?
from the again... dept
Well, this seems to be a popular topic. Yesterday we wondered if mobile phones were changing people’s perception of reality and listed a bunch of examples. I didn’t even think to mention the idea of “smart mobs”, which we discussed a few months ago. Today, however, Wired is running a review of the book, which comes out this month, by Howard Rheingold, Smart Mobs: The Next Social Revolution, and makes a lot of the same points about how mobile phones are changing the way people interact. Sounds like an interesting book.
