A Conceptual System to Situate Ubiquitous Computing
This paper investigates situating of ubiquitous computing within our current everyday environments. We describe how tying information to actual physical locations can improve the usefulness of ubiquitous computing envi- ronments and promote the use of ubiquitous computing services. It is envi- sioned that these environments will emerge as a social framework for informa- tion distribution, and that this form of interaction will maintain user privacy, provide a new mechanism for social interaction and situate pervasive comput- ing environments in community supportive roles.
