Phones. fashion, self and society

Navegando la web de Howard Rheingold acab� en TheFeature leyendo uno de sus art�culos sobre el dise�o en m�viles y su impacto en la sociedad.

"Constructing identity by wearing symbolic objects is the inward tension associated with fashion. The outward face of the tension between identity and society is the public dimension of telephone use ? the act of conducting a private conversation with a physically absent partner, in front of copresent strangers. The performative aspects of our personalities find a new dimension of expression with the mobile phone, but in the act of using it, we are changing the nature of the stage of public behavior."
