‘Mobile Ideas: Tracking a Concept Through Time and Space’ (2010) in Mobilities, Vol.5 No.4

Co-written with my supervisor Dr David Beer, it’s a write-up of my Masters project from a couple of years ago where I attempted to track how an idea was transmitted from its author out across the net by logging every instance I could find. The idea I used as my guinea pig was Bruce Sterling’s Spime concept and he has been kind enough to give us a quick mention over on Wired. From his response I think he likes it, which is definitely a relief!
