A new blog dedicated to discourse on social mobile practices and their intersection with youth and consumer culture got started earlier this month. Called Shift6 (or ^6), it’s written by a group of bloggers, including social network guru, danah boyd. From danah boyd’s blog:
Shift6.net is an “open brand” lab project by the creators of Blyk. Just as “shift 6″ equals “insert here” on your keyboard, Shift6.net is meant to pool ideas about what’s going on in a collaborative and productive way that is transparent and available to anyone who is interested in these issues.
I’m convinced small screen devices, and particularly mobile phones, are going to have a big influence on the way libraries do business in the not too distant future. This is definitely a blog to watch.
