" Dialogues about commercial applications for the mobile platform, new technological innovations, and market development ofter occur in separate forums unrelated to scholarly dialogues about the sociology of mobile use and creative practices outside of the contemporary commercial market. Researchers, developers, and investors in these areas all have specific approaches that they seldom have an opportunity to share. For this reason, this Mobile Nation anthology brings together very different communities to share a dialogue about their methodologies and approaches to this growing field. Out hope with it is to foster an increased capacity to work together to build the creative, technical, ad social capacity that mobile computing will bring."
