An Application as a Place

In the last blog I talked about a device as a place. Now I'd like to consider an application (app) as a place. The choice of a news aggregator, social media, or video app puts you in a place from which you view and interact with the world. From this place you view things and state YOUR views. If you have an app which anticipates your selections you are choosing what comes into your place. Sp the act of choosing the app creates a place into which you invite the world and from which you go out into the world. You use software which fits your way of interacting with the world and which makes you comfortable much as your favorite places.
