The folks at the SAP Design Guild (G-d! Shouldn't every major org have
this?)

Put up a review of this book.

Anyone else read it? Recommend it?

Ps. I wonder if they are using pervasive to mean ubiquitous, or am I just
getting these terms wrong.

Yes, from Wikipedia:

*Ubiquitous computing* (ubicomp, or sometimes ubiqcomp) integrates
computation into the environment, rather than having computers which are
distinct objects. Another term for ubiquitous computing is *pervasive
computing.*

I have not read the book, however - look forward to reading it.

This is one of the best books that I have read in the past three or
four years. I read this last Spring (2004) in a few days and could
not put it down. I have gone back through it with highlighter. It is
one of the few books that most interaction designers I know have read
and nearly all have loved it.

Digital Ground pulls from the same foundation as Paul Dourish' "Where
the Action Is", but extends the understanding and implications much
farther. Digital Ground is a must if you have to consider mobile or
location based information into your projects. If you are not
thinking about location based information, you should be (or should
have been) as what we build today will need to work in that reality in
the very near future.

All the best,
Thomas
