We live in a "mobile" world now, but what does that really mean?


Mobile. The word is everywhere, but its vernacular use only hints at what the term truly signifies about the changes happening within us, and as a society due to “mobile” technology. I will blend taxonomy and philosophy to provoke thought about the essence of “mobile,” how it really is different, and the paradoxes it presents. This presentation will peel off the many obscuring layers of “mobile” and allow us to look directly in the face of this age-defining shift.
