Towards Participatory Design for M2O

Yishay Mor & Niall Winters. London Knowledge Lab, University of London , UK

M2O (read: em two oh) stands for mobile access to participatory media. Participatory media (also known as ‘social software’) have a great empowering potential, in knowledge sharing, community organization and active citizenship. However, they are not accessible to those who do not have a networked computer. Furthermore, they tend to loose the local dimension of knowledge and social interaction. Following some pilot studies conducted at the London Knowledge Lab, we are seeking ways to engage in a field study of participatory design of M2O systems in a developing region.
