Given the importance of developers for the success of mobile platforms, it is critical for vendors to understand how platform innovations impact developer interaction activity and what issues and topics are discussed. An understanding of these issues can help providers improve their release strategies, manage developer expectations, and avoid negative reputation effects. To facilitate this understanding, we are analyzing knowledge ecosystem reactions to change in mobile software development platforms.
This is the first is a series of experiments in locative narrative. In this version, Projet is entirely screen-based. Later applications in this series will use Argon to create true location-based narratives. Projet itself can be experienced on a laptop or desktop screen, but there is greater intimacy and effect when experienced on a tablet or phone. A woman finds herself in a village in the French countryside, reflects on her present life, and recalls her past. Projet reduces the viewer's interaction to the barest minimum.
Using a sample of 32 million Reddit posts, we characterize the removal explanations that are provided to Redditors, and link them to measures of subsequent user behaviors—including future post submissions and future post removals.
