We build and study technologies to help people collaborate, create, and connect with one another and the world around them.  We are a multidisciplinary team applying our expertise to areas such as interest-based networks, nearby sharing, creative expression, hyperlocal information, crowd work, and collective action. We collaborate with colleagues in academia, startups, the art & design community, and at Microsoft.
