It reviews the changing role of end-users of digital services - no longer consumers of ready-made content, but active producers of experiences. The chapter identifies three stages of ubiquitous computing research and indicates how they have supported experience sharing. The chapter closes with an overview of research projects that highlight different aspects of experience sharing.
