On the heals of Dan's call to arms for Interaction Designers, this
seems to be right in line with the type of "next generation" work that
Dan feels we should all be thinking about and challenging ourselves
with.

The blog entry is from an organization "Touch" that I've been
following @ http://nearfield.org. They work on RFID and other Near
Field Connection (NFC) technologies and their ramifications to IxD.

The direct blog entery
(http://www.nearfield.org/2007/08/time-motion-and-touch) references
someone who is doing work in this area at a very semantic level but
discusses the practical realities about these semantics.

The one bit I really liked was about how today's prominent designs are
trying to use ideas from a stationary internet and apply them to a
mobile one and this accounts for the real failure of many mobile
application projects.

Thanks for the reference Dave.

I think the primary takeaway from the iPhone, some of the Nokia wifi browsers and particularly the adoption of gestures is that the small screen is no longer the primary consideration in mobile. We are seeing how this will be managed. The real issue, as it always seems to be, is the context of use. In the case of mobile... so many things change, and change fairly predictably, when tasks move from the desktop to the handset.

Timo's work around mobile and NFC has been fantastic and around for
years. His older work is found at Elasticspace blog (
http://www.elasticspace.com/ ).

All the best,
Thomas
