Guest Blogger Tom McBrien shares his insights on the use of Skyhook's data in W3FI art project.
As daily life becomes increasingly integrated with the digital world, University of Denver Professor of Emergent Digital Practices Chris Coleman wants people to focus on how their digital journey interacts with the real world and the digital journeys of others.
His upcoming Colorado Springs “W3FI” art exhibition draws heavily on technology and Skyhook location data to communicate his messages about online interactions. The exhibit got it's name as a combination of "Wi-Fi", the word "we" and the slang use of the number 3 in place of the letter "E", Coleman uses the resulting "W3FI" to refer to the greater digital community. Coleman provides people the opportunity to consider big questions about their online lives in a magical space somewhere between the physical and digital worlds.
