Computer Scientists Studying the Social Effects of Ad-Hoc Mobile Networks
TheFeature :: Cyborg Swarms and Wearable Communities:
"We believe that fully embodied 'human moments' are essential for community building. While Virtual Communities on the Internet have led to a separation of physical place and social space, our work is an attempt to reunite the two. At first approximation, we define a Wearable Community as a social network created by or maintained through the use of wearable computing devices. A collection of wearable computer users becomes a Wearable Community when enough people use their wearable computers to form webs of personal relationships."
