I am pleased to formally open the Call for Proposals for cities in North America interested in hosting the 2015 Interaction conference -- the annual conference of the Interaction Design Association (IxDA).
I've been watching the growth of contextual awareness in mobile apps
recently.... There are several GPS, positionally aware apps... but I
wonder where else this contextual awareness can go? What else do
people want to know about their social networks beyond location
awareness? Events and shared interests are well traveled... In
general, the more (reliably) connected mobile devices become the more
opportunity for contextual awareness of the world around me...
