“List” issue of M/C Journal

The “List” issue of M/C Journal edited by Rowan Wilken and Anthony McCosker has just been published which includes a short article I wrote about representations of supermarket space through RFID and QR code based assistive technologies for the vision impaired.

From the issue’s editorial:


… in “Lists, Spatial Practice, and Assistive Technologies for the Blind,” Jethani explores the promise and perils of locative mobile media technologies designed to assist vision-impaired supermarket shoppers. Examining two prototypic applications, Shop Talk and Blind Shopping, Jethani argues that “the emancipatory potential” of these applications, “their efficacy in practical situations,” and their future commercial viability, is dependent upon commercial and institutional infrastructures and control, regulatory factors, and the extent to which they can successfully address “issues of interoperability and expanded access of spatial inventory databases and data.”
