 8/25/11 Participation  Urbanism  is  the  open  authoring, sharing,  and  remixing  of  new  of  existing  urban technologies  marked  by,  requiring  or  involving participation,  especially  affording  the  opportunity for  individual  citizen  participation,  sharing,  and voice. Participatory  Urbanism  builds  upon  a  large  body of related projects where citizens act as agents of

 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. It  is  NOT  a  disconnected  personal  phone application,  a  domestic  networked  appliance,  a mobile  route  planning  application,  an  office

 8/25/11 Participatory  Urbanism  promotes  new  styles  and  methods for individual citizens to become proactive in  their  involvement  with  their  city,  neighborhood,  and  urban self reflexivity. Examples  of  Participatory  Urbanism  include  but  are  not  limited  to:  providing  mobile  device  centered  hardware  toolkits  for  non-experts  to  become  authors  of  new  everyday  urban  objects,  generating  individual  and collective needs based dialogue tools around the  desired usage of urban green spaces, or empowering  citizens to collect and share air quality data measured  with sensor enabled mobile devices.

 8/25/11 Our mobile devices are globally networked, speak the  lingua  franca  of  the  city  (SMS,  Bluetooth, MMS),  and  are  becoming  the  dominant  urban processor. We need to shatter our understanding of them as phones  and  celebrate  them  in  their  new  role  as measurement instruments. 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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
