  Semi-Real Time? Presence Peaking?
Erick and I were talking the other day about the essence of what this "mobile connectedness" is all about... and our ideas about allowing people to stay "connected" more easily. It seems that the interaction is somewhere in between something that is real-time and something that is asynchronous. But, yet, really it's about neither. It's about allowing someone to touch what you are doing right now. It's about allowing someone a little peek into your daily life. It's about presence. It's about knowing what someone else is up to. It's why teenagers text each other 50+ times a day.

But, it seems there is not word for it. So I've been struggling to capture what this semi-realtime/ presence awareness experience is all about. After meeting John Poisson at Elizabeth Goodman's going away party, we sat and discussed this a bit more. To my surprise, he got what I was talking about and ironically had thought about it as well. Seems as though, John and I have been thinking about a lot of similar things :)... In Japan, apparently, they use a term which is something like "mind-touching". I like that better, but somehow I don't think it entirely still captures the essence of what it's all about.

So, if you get what Im talking about, and have any ideas of a better language we can use to talk about this idea... please let me know.

presence touching?

Until then, I am going to keep bugging Erick by using Semi-Realtime around him and Presence Peaking in my own mind.

Completely agree, it's the not-quite-real-time that is important. Likewise, the I-am-sharing-this-with-you.

I'm a big fan of away messages, but Flickr is the ultimate for me at the moment. Admittedly, myself and some of my friends don't pay for our phone bills, so we're MMSing and emailing like crazy, but we'll take pictures with our phone and send them right then even if we're mainly taking pictures with a real camera for later digestion and uploading. When we get pack to a computer, often the photos will have comments, notes or some kind of response. It's a background aura... blogs can provide this too, as can certain kinds of mailing list and irc channels.

So, the important point in all of the above is that the whole social group has to use and respond to the chosen method. Pretty much every communication tool can be bent into this form of presence.

Oh, and John is one of the most greatest fabulousest people...

Yeah, I agree Flickr is awesome! I like what you say about background aura... a question: is there a way to make it foreground? Does it make sense to?

Im not sure every communication tool makes sense to have this exact same thing... similar one, yes. I'm currently thinking about other communication tools and how this differs or is similar. What makes this so unique that you and your friends are doing it like crazy?

thanks for the thoughts.

Hi Anita,

Just wanted to point you to a post on Joi Itos blog, where he talks about the "Full-Time Intimate Community" - I think it is similar to your thoughts:

A typical dictionary definition of hypnosis states that it is: a state that resembles sleep but that is induced by suggestion. However, anyone who has tried hypnosis (and any self respecting hypnotist) will tell you that this is a very simplistic view of the subject!
A much better description comes from the Free Online Dictionary which states that hypnosis is: an artificially induced state of consciousness, characterised by heightened suggestibility and receptivity to direction. So what does this mean and how can it be used to your advantage?

Well, the subject of hypnosis has been discussed and pondered since the late 1700s. Many explanations and theories have come and gone though science, however, has yet to supply a valid and well-established definition of how it actually happens. It's fairly unlikely that the scientific community will arrive at a definitive explanation for hypnosis in the near future either, as the untapped resources of our 'mostly' uncharted mind still remain something of a mystery.
However, the general characteristics of hypnosis are well documented. It is a trance state characterized by extreme suggestibility, deep relaxation and heightened imaginative functioning. It's not really like sleep at all, because the subject is alert the whole time. It is most often compared to daydreaming, or the feeling you get when you watch a movie or read a captivating book. You are fully conscious, but you tune out most of the outside world. Your focus is concentrated intensely on the mental processes you are experiencing - if movies didn't provide such disassociation with everyday life and put a person in a very receptive state then they would not be as popular (nor would TV advertising be as effective!). Have you ever stated that a film wasn't great because you just couldn't 'get into it'???
This works very simply; while daydream or watching a movie, an imaginary world becomes almost real to you because it fully engages your emotional responses. Such mental pursuits will on most occasions cause real emotional responses such as fear, sadness or happiness (have you ever cried at a sad movie, felt excited by a future event not yet taken place or shivered at the thought of your worst fear?).
It is widely accepted that these states are all forms of self-hypnosis. If you take this view you can easily see that you go into and out of mild hypnotic states on a daily basis - when driving home from work, washing the dishes, or even listening to a boring conversation. Although these situations produce a mental state that is very receptive to suggestion the most powerful time for self-change occurs in the trance state brought on by intentional relaxation and focusing exercises. This deep hypnosis is often compared to the relaxed mental state between wakefulness and sleep.
In this mental state, people feel uninhibited and relaxed and they release all worries and doubts that normally occupy their mind. A similar experience occurs while you are daydreaming or watching the TV. You become so involved in the onscreen antics
