INTRODUCTION – Even if we have seen an increasing interest in development of location-based services, traditionally research within mobile ICT has been dominated by a focus on global nets of information and media channels. We believe it is necessary to go beyond the anywhere-anytime ideal of mobile and digital media, in order to produce new knowledge on practices of mediated communication in public and semi-public spaces and on ways to transform it through place-specific media services. This is what we are trying to do in the Media Places project.
