Making technology our own? Domesticating technology into everyday life
This book focuses on how consumers, or users, acquire and master technology in different social contexts, and examines how they actively create a relationship with, and define themselves through, that technology. What happens to technology after it leaves the laboratory and the designer's desks? How has gender affected the use of ultrasound? The authors of this collection of articles argue that the users/consumers of technology are the co-designers of their relationship to technological products. With references.
