The smart phone offers communication, connectivity, content consumption, and content creativity. This powerful device is both personal, containing private information, and public, providing a digital link to the rest of the world. The author has designed, built, and evaluated several systems that support social interaction, enhancing the relationships and communication between individuals and groups. He illustrates how the smart phone?s capabilities can be manipulated to augment traditional interactions and develop new interactions. Pervasive systems become powerful when they improve people's lives; the smart phone's support of social interactions can help achieve this goal.
