Mark Ralston on Building the Meta-City / PICNIC Festival 2011

The modern city is becoming a pointer system, the new URL, for tomorrow's hybrid digital-physical environment. Today's Facebook will be complemented by tomorrow's Placebook. Explosive innovation and adoption of computing, mobile devices and rich sources of data are changing our cities: where we live, work, and play. It's about us, and how computing in the context of our cities is changing how we live.

A digital landscape overlays our physical world and is expanding to offer ever-richer experiences that complement—and in emerging cases, replace—the physical experience. Mark Ralston, Chief Creative Officer of frog, takes a glimpse into a coming world where computing isn't just with us, but surrounds us and uses the context of our environment to empower us in more natural, yet powerful ways.
