The option of participatory design advocates the individual´s autonomy to develop social uses […] - Jul 7, 2010
  22. Power over Mediated Agency and its Ethical Implications for Interaction Design

    Abstract There is little discussion about power within Interaction Design field. To call attention to this issue, we present a model for discussing conflicts that arises at the human-artifact interface. We argue that artifacts support human behavior by providing adaptations, but these adaptations can expand or restrict human actions. Human action cannot be fully controlled […] - Jul 7, 2010
