"One is surprised, one is disturbed, one desires something familiar to hold on to- As soon as we are shown something old in the new, we are calmed. The supposed instinct for causality is only fear of the unfamiliar and the attempt to discover something familiar in it- a search, not for causes, but for the familiar."
– Friedrich Nietzsche, from The Will to Power

Special Issue: "Social Transformations from the Mobile Internet"

Sunday, December 19, 2010 - 12:08pm
Jason Farman / Future Internet Journal

In the first lines of Howard Rheingold's seminal book on pervasive computing, Smart Mobs, he notes an observation he had in Japan that changed the way he thought about mobile technologies: "The first signs of the next shift began to reveal themselves to me on a spring afternoon. That was when I began to notice people on the streets of Tokyo staring at their mobile phones instead of talking to them" (2002, p. xi). This shift from using a mobile device as a voice communication medium toward usages that focus on data (specifically the "mobile Internet") heralds the era of physical and pervasive computing culture.
