Inside Out

"The Headmap Manifesto [PDF] is a sequence of text fragments dealing with the social and cultural implications of location aware devices. Headmap argues a move from the 'inside' view that developed after the failure of the space programme, the closure of frontiers, the rise of television, early computing, interiorised simulation and drug culture...towards an 'outside' view--a recolonisation of the real world, computers becomming invisible, mobile, networked and location aware, the real world augmented rather than simulated..."

Headmap is an informal guerilla (distributed) think tank. Headmap examines the social implications and applications of location aware devices, augmented social networks, wearable computers, thinking tools and semantic network interfaces.
