Exploring the analogue - digital legibility of our behaviors
Cell phones have become ubiquitous devices that help us to navigate and interact with the city. We use them for almost everything from talking to emails to surfing the web. Through these interactions we leave behind geo-local ‘data trails’ that enable assumptions and observations about our behaviors with one another and our environment. In the context of the current hype around data this session explores questions around the use of digital data as new means for behavioral user observation and the impact of these methods on the field of user observation and field studies.
