Sampling the Spectrum:
The Politics, Practices and Poetics of Mobile Technologies

Hosted by the MDCN, this symposium examined the impact of mobile culture and the evolving idea of a wireless commons. Over the course of four days, we investigated how wireless technologies enriched and modified public life in Canada, challenged our notions of space and place, and shaped our day-to-day experiences.
