The Mobile Connection

Rich Ling provides a compelling examination of the real impact of mobile telephony. It's not about technology, it's about people. We need more of these kinds of studies. --Don Norman, Co-Founder, Nielsen Norman Group and author of Emotional Design This book combines scientific rigor, penetrating insight, and attention to an extraordinarily timely subject-the social impact of mobile communications. His ideas about "micro-coordination" and "the softening of time" are fundamental. Ling has big ideas about what the new world of always-on and ubiquitous media mean to our daily lives. --Howard Rheingold, Rheingold Associates and author of The Virtual Community Rich Ling probes the way the mobile phone influences lives, talk and interaction. His carefully documented investigations paint an authoritative picture that will command continuing interest . . .an impressive achievement. --James E. Katz, Ph.D, Professor of Communication, Rutgers University Has the cell phone forever changed the way people communicate? The mobile phone is used for "real time” coordination while on the run, adolescents use it to manage their freedom, and teens "text” to each other day and night. The mobile phone is more than a simple technical innovation or social fad, more than just an intrusion on polite society. This book, based on world-wide research involving tens of thousands of interviews and contextual observations, looks into the impact of the phone on our daily lives. The mobile phone has fundamentally affected our accessibility, safety and security, coordination of social and business activities, and use of public places. Based on research conducted in dozens of countries, this insightful and entertaining book examines the once unexpected interaction between humans and cell phones, and between humans, period. The compelling discussion and projections about the future of the telephone should give designers everywhere a more informed practice and process, and provide researchers with new ideas to last years.
