Andr Caron and Letizia Caronia look at teenagers' use of text messaging to chat, flirt, and gossip. They find that messaging among teens has little to do with sending shorthand information quickly. Instead, it is a verbal performance through which young people create culture. Moving Cultures argues that teenagers have domesticated and reinterpreted this technology.

Hat die Spaßgesellschaft ausgelacht und hat die Krise der Wirtschaft und der Werte sämtliche Lebensstrukturen durchdrungen, sodass schon aus psychohygienischen Gründen eine permanente Ablenkung erforderlich wird, um das Leben durchzustehen? Oder haben sich die Gewichte einfach so verschoben, dass Arbeit oder besser sinnstiftende Arbeit ihren Stellenwert zurückbekommen hat und sich in den Arbeitsprozessen heutzutage mehr Entfaltungsmöglichkeiten bieten, sich Arbeit und Freizeit also nicht mehr als Antipoden einander gegenüberstehen, sondern eher ineinander greifen? Sind Urlaubs- und Ferienzeiten einfach dadurch geprägt, dass man sich von Routinen befreit bewegen kann und das möglichst weit weg oder man an solche Orte reist, die der Anmutung von Paradiesen entsprechen, Heterotope mit Glückseligkeits¬versprechen, wohl wissend, dass es sich nur um ein zeitweiliges Abtauchen in solche Glücksräume handeln kann? Oder suchen wir nur nach Phasen der Ruhe, weil der kinetische Overkill zu einer Überhitzung des Systems Mensch führt, Kopf- wie Atemlosigkeit die Sinne benebeln und das Kontrastprogramm in einem demonstrativ rasenden Stillstand besteht, in Zeiträumen, in der Zeit keine dominierende Rolle spielt? Es sich leisten können, sich im Lotussitz niederzu¬lassen und die Augen auf die Ewigkeit zu richten – wäre das eine Alternative zu den Millionen Stunden verlorener Zeit in den Wartehallen der Flughäfen und im Stau auf Autobahnen? Die dramatischen Veränderungen in unseren Gesellschaften während der letzten Jahrzehnte haben Arbeit und Freizeit entgrenzt und ent¬koppelt, eigene und doch ineinander verzahnte Bereiche geschaffen. Was können wir erwarten und welche Aussichten ergeben sich im Kontext von Klimawandel, demographi¬schen Verschiebungen, der Beschleunigung des Lebens durch die Entwicklung der Technik – das sind entscheidende Fragen für den Tourismus- und Freizeitmarkt der Zukunft.

Has material civilization spun out of control, becoming too fast for our own well-being and that of the planet? This book confronts these anxieties and examines the changing rhythms and temporal organization of everyday life. How do people handle hurriedness, burn-out and stress? Are slower forms of consumption viable? In case studies covering the United States, Asia and Europe, international experts follow routines and rhythms, their emotional and political dynamics and show how they are anchored in material culture and everyday practice. Running themes of the book are questions of coordination and disruption; cycles and seasons; and the interplay between power and freedom, and between material and natural forces. The result is a volume that brings studies of practice, temporality and material culture together to open up a new intellectual agenda.

This anthology – the first of its kind in eight years – collects some of the best and most current research and reflection on the complex interactions between religion and computer-mediated communication (CMC). The contributions cohere around the central question: how will core religious understandings of identity, community and authority shape and be (re)shaped by the communicative possibilities of Web 2.0? The authors gathered here address these questions in three distinct ways: through contemporary empirical research on how diverse traditions across the globe seek to take up the technologies and affordances of contemporary CMC; through investigations that place these contemporary developments in larger historical and theological contexts; and through careful reflection on the theoretical dimensions of research on religion and CMC. In their introductory and concluding essays, the editors uncover and articulate the larger intersections and patterns suggested by individual chapters, including trajectories for future research.

Wireless networks are the fastest growing communications technology in history. Are mobile phones expressions of identity, fashionable gadgets, tools for life -- or all of the above? Mobile Communication and Society looks at how the possibility of multimodal communication from anywhere to anywhere at any time affects everyday life at home, at work, and at school, and raises broader concerns about politics and culture both global and local.Drawing on data gathered from around the world, the authors explore who has access to wireless technology, and why, and analyze the patterns of social differentiation seen in unequal access.They explore the social effects of wireless communication -- what it means for family life, for example, when everyone is constantly in touch, or for the idea of an office when workers can work anywhere. Is the technological ability to multitask further compressing time in our already hurried existence?The authors consider the rise of a mobile youth culture based on peer-to-peer networks, with its own language of texting, and its own values. They examine the phenomenon of flash mobs, and the possible political implications. And they look at the relationship between communication and development and the possibility that developing countries could "leapfrog" directly to wireless and satellite technology. This sweeping book -- moving easily in its analysis from the United States to China, from Europe to Latin America and Africa -- answers the key questions about our transformation into a mobile network society.
