 8/25/11 Participatory Urbanism presents an important new shift  in  mobile  device  usage  –  from Communication  tool  to  “networked  mobile personal measurement instrument”. We  explore  how  these  new  “instruments”  enable entirely  new  participatory  urban  lifestyles  and create novel mobile device usage models.

Our  desire  is  to  provide  our  mobile  devices  with new  “super-senses”  and  abilities  by  enabling  a

 8/25/11 We  argue  there  are  two  indisputable  facts  about our future mobile devices: (1) They will be equipped with more sensing  and processing capabilities and  (2) They will also be driven by an architecture  of  participation  and  democracy  that  encourages users to add value to their  tools and applications as they use them.

 8/25/11 Millions  of  us  carry  a  mobile  device  such  as  a mobile phone with us everyday.  The only real-time environmental data it renders is a narrow slice of the electromagnetic spectrum with a tiny  readout  of  cell  tower  signal  strength  using  a series of bars.
