                                         This design workshop will focus on thinking through possible ways we can integrate our work                                          into the evolving mechanisms of the "Third Cloud" technologies of wireless, ad-hoc use of                                          resources centered around us - The Network of We, not I. This will help us understand the                                          challenges and opportunities in making use of context and identity in mobile social                                          applications. We will consider scenarios of interaction in mobile social applictions. We will                                          consider scenarios of interaction in The Street, The Interior, and The Home (and perhaps,                                          The Prairie), where techologies enhance social awareness and interaction among people who                                          are closely tied, and loosely tied.
