Speaker on 11/20/07
I really enjoyed the speaker and one thing that I found interesting that he mentioned was the media scape. I like the idea that people in the future will be able to not only track where they are with the GPS system but also will be able to hear stories about the location. So eventually everywhere a person goes with the GPS system they will be able to get some kind of background information. Having the ability to access stories that pertain to where you are physically will make a person feel more connected. This feature will be great for people trying to find the best place to buy a house. Getting history from the stories that make up a neighborhood could play a role in helping an individual find whether or not the area would prove suitable for them.
