This project aims to exploit the temporal rhythms of the city and the periodic, incidental encounters between urban dwellers. Pervasive Computing technologies will be applied to detect collocation events and enable the distribution of information between these co–present individuals. This information channel will provide a localised source of ambient, background knowledge within a community, which may be a useful means of building social capital, maintaining community awareness and providing a starting point for further social interactions.
