A Computer in the Forest

July 27, 2009

Where and how do communications technologies appear in our everyday lives? When do we use them? What part of the house are they in? Who uses them? What do we use them for? What’s the relationship between computers, cameras, iPods, stereos, printers, pens & paper? Are they all on one desk together? 

Is the computer the new TV? If so, how is it different? Who can sit in front of it? If it’s more than one person, do you talk about what’s on the screen? Can you drink beer in front of it? Who decides what websites to visit? Is having the mouse the equivalent of holding the remote control? Who sits here?
