Musica Romana is a prototype I made of a location-based mobile web site presenting music written for churches in Rome.
I have summed up my experiences in the chapter: «Toward a Rhetoric of the Place: Creating Locative Experiences«, in Liza Potts and Michael Salvo’s Rhetoric and Experience Architecture (Parlor Press, 2017).

Thanks to Parlor Press’ commitment to open access, you can download my chapter here.
Even better, of course, would be to buy the book from the publisher’s website or from Amazon.
(The chapter was written in 2015, published in July 2017.)
I have written a chapter in a new anthology edited by Irina Kaldrack and Martina Leeker. There is no software, there are just services (Lüneburg: Meson Press, 2015).
My chapter is on mobile apps, and is titled «The cloud, the store, and the millions of apps». It is open access publication, so anyone can download and read for free.

This is the extended abstract for a seminar on «Genre innovation» at the University of Oslo, 6 December 2013.
We have developed a web site for mobile devices, presenting church music to tourists in Rome (Fagerjord, 2011). Using the phones’ GPS, it gives directions to six churches where tourists can listen to music written for that church centuries ago together with spoken commentaries. Blending genres from radio and tourist guides we have created a genre prototype. We also hoped to learn more about what a good location-based texts is. Is this design research, or just design?

Flashlight is number 16 on the list of top 25 free apps of all time. It allows you to use the iPhone as a flashlight in two ways: Either by turning on the LED light used by the camera for flash, or by filling the screen with a solid color, so you can use the screen itself as a light source.

The Facebook app is, of course, the mobile version of the world’s largest social network site, and one of the more complex apps in this study. Both Facebook and its iOS app has changed many times. Here, I am analyzing version 5.0. Les videre
