Media Synnchronicity Theory is used as a base for investigating four different distances to communication in software engineering projects. The distances are geographical, temporal, cultural and organization distance. Organization distance refers

This paper had some of the keywords I use, but was little bit off my topic. It is focused on development of ICT-tools that help collaboration and care in clinical context

It has been suggested that in the Design conference that one should not read and use old articles as reference when talking about communication media. However, this paper takes an interesting

Nielsen reports an analysis of user descriptions in Cooper’s and Caroll’s scenarios. The analysis reveals the user accounts in user-centred design to be very flat and even naive. As a solution

The article presents results of a quite extreme case study of technology usage. The authors have interviewed 59 persons living in countries that are or have just been in war. The

Barkhuus and Rode analysed the type and scope of evaluations in 1983, 1988, 1994, 2000 and 2006 CHI conference papers. Their results showed that proportion of papers including

The paper starts with a problem that the designer does not receive enough feedback from the users along the product life cycle. Users in this case means people involved in the

The article presents and idea of focusing (at least some of) HCI’s effort to concretely making world a better place. The primary aim of the authors is to reduce and prevent

The paper reports findings of an ethnographic study of domestic technology. As a research method, authors have used something called technology biography. Technology biography includes: 1) a technology tour of participants

The article takes Winograd’s legendary suggestion (in 1996) for the theme for next generation of software design & HCI, i.e. ‘designing for the full range of human experience’, as a starting
