How can you interact with The Mapping Brandeis Project?

The Mapping Brandeis Project explores the possibilities of wireless technology on campus. Because of the presence of laptops, smart phones, and other wireless devices in all campus spaces, the spatial and temporal boundaries of everyday life at Brandeis University are increasingly expanding beyond the limitations of place and time that, only decades earlier, seemed secure. Do we experience any difference, in our everyday activities on campus, between "physical" and "online" spaces, between the "virtual" and the "real"? What do we still want from "concrete" spaces?

We hope that members of the Brandeis community will bring their laptops, smart phones, and other wireless devices into a specific space on campus, log onto the Project from within that space, and engage an already existing analysis of that space.

We invite you to post to the blogs included throughout the Project, adding your own layers, maps, and stories to those already archived here.
