Cameraphone Ethnography

François Bar, one of the profs at my school, has been researching Brazilian moto boys -- messengers zipping around São Paolo on motorized bikes -- and their use of mobile cameraphones to create ethnographic portraits of neighborhoods, communities, life, crime and other experiences in this megacity.

Check out their work by going to this site and select a name from the drop-down menu to see that moto-boy (or girl) and their enthography using phonecams, audio files, and phone vids.
