The article attempts to trace the range of transformations in cultural practices that mobile technologies (particularly mobile phones) bring into everyday life. The author pinpoints three major trends marking such transformations: 1) an ongoing dematerialization of mobile telephony moving towards the dominance of function over structure; 2) an acceptation of changes in everyday culture into traditions and rituals and the beginning of rematerialization of liquidity; 3) the inhibition of development and its possible social consequences (the autopoiesis of the system as a way of slowing down social changes that are unfolding too swiftly).
