To continue our series on ubiquitious computing, we look to the book, "Smart Things, by Mike Kuniavsky.

"Smart Things presents a problem-solving approach to addressing designers' needs and concentrates on process, rather than technological detail, to keep from being quickly outdated. It pays close attention to the capabilities and limitations of the medium in question and discusses the tradeoffs and challenges of design in a commercial environment. Divided into two sections, frameworks and techniques, the book discusses broad design methods and case studies that reflect key aspects of these approaches."

The book can be bought here: http://www.amazon.com/Smart-Things-Ubiquitous-Computing-Experience/dp...

In the meetup, we usually take about 10 minutes to write our favorite topics on some stickies (as many as we want) and go around the table, 1 stickie per person, until all the stickies have been addressed.  This way, everyone gets a chance to say something about the topic.
