'Personal Journeys'

Mobile Access is a qualitative longitudinal study examining the relationship between mobile technologies, the individual and the broader environment. Whilst the central research questions and themes are determined by the research team the work is funded by a substantial consortia of 15 commercial organisations including Vodafone, Orange, Motorola, Microsoft, BSkyB and Associated Newspapers. This, the seventh iteration of the study explores the 'Personal Journey' from the perspective of the augmented individual (through technologies held close to the body) and their connected relationships with other people, spaces and devices. In exploring this interconnectivity the piece examines issues of communication, content consumption and the convergence of modes and spaces of access. The discussion will provide an over view of past, current and future areas of study and hopefully provide the basis for some stimulating debate.
