Mobile is the next big thing, no news there for most of us. While we are using our mobile services, we are more often connected to the real world, real places, real people and real physical products. New mobile services are bridging the gap between the digital world and our real physical world. And, I wrote a book about this.
This is the sales pitch: The new digital reality is going to change the way we live, behave, shop, and do business. And this is all happening at a disruptive speed because of our context and location-aware mobile devices. This revolution is going to be culturally as transforming as the invention of the Internet itself. This book is about the services and technologies that bridge the gap between the real and the digital, and the implications of the new digital meatspace. The book provides background, facts, and implications for much-hyped services and phenomena, and introduces a few not known to the masses.
And, what about the name, Meatspace, you may wonder?
“The name of the book, meatspace, relates to a division between the digital world and the real world. Some of the nerdier of us might refer to the physical world as “the meatspace”. While chatting online, for example, one might reply to a request to meet up later that night with: “You mean in meatspace?”
