Leading media scholars consider the social and cultural changes that come with the contemporary development of ubiquitous computing.

Ubiquitous computing and our cultural life promise to become completely interwoven: technical currents feed into our screen culture of digital television, video, home computers, movies, and high-resolution advertising displays. Technology has become at once larger and smaller, mobile and ambient. In Throughout, leading writers on new media-including Jay David Bolter, Mark Hansen, N. Katherine Hayles, and Lev Manovich-take on the crucial challenges that ubiquitous and pervasive computing pose for cultural theory and criticism.

The thirty-four contributing researchers consider the visual sense and sensations of living with a ubicomp culture; electronic sounds from the uncanny to the unremarkable; the effects of ubicomp on communication, including mobility, transmateriality, and infinite availability; general trends and concrete specificities of interaction designs; the affectivity in ubicomp experiences, including performances; context awareness; and claims on the "real" in the use of such terms as "augmented reality" and "mixed reality."
