Abstract [en]

As we draw towards the end of the first decade of the twenty-first century, digital design research faces a complex conceptual and analytical landscape. This is one that concerns relations between multiples of tools, technologies and information systems, their social semiotic, multimodal mediations and cultural practices, and their interpretation. Given the scope of interdisciplinary practices and theories that are to be found in much digital design research, researchers in this field are faced with considerable challenges in identifying, selecting and applying analytical frameworks. This is more pronounced when digital design research entails a multitude of practices and knowledges, as demonstrated in Chapter 2.

Abstract [en]

The Swedish public sector is involved in an overwhelming change process aiming towards creating a good-service society based on information technology. Rationalisation, efficiency and effectiveness are the leading signs in the dominating discourse of Swedish society of today. This discourse is silent about public sector employees, their agencies, their participation, and how the public sector is the dominant labour market for women. Alternative stories of women’s presence in the creation of a good-service society are presented with a focus on performances of gender, skills, learning and technology. The empirical material was collected in municipalities in the south east of Sweden. Methods sensitive to everyday practices in order to create space and time for women and their stories were developed and used. The methodological approach, feminist technoscience, provides opportunities to move beyond the dominating IT discourses in order to make visible other discourses where women are present.

Abstract [en]

Digital media have placed a focus on sustainability sustainability in terms of long-term digital preservation of societal memories and cultural heritage. There is also discussion about technological issues, such as flexible infrastructures, standards and formats sustainability in digital design standards, formats, practices, which are explored in relation to how to build sustainable systems (Braa et al. 2004; Byrne 2005; Byrne and Sahay 2007). Further, while there already exists a body of knowledge about standards, classification, and category work (e.g. Star 1991; Bowker and Star 1999; Verran et al. 2007), it is also important to relate these standards, formats and routines sustainability in digital design standards, formats, practices in digital design to social sustainability in digital design social and cultural sustainability in digital design cultural sustainability, and not just durability.

Abstract [en]

Theories and analytical perspectives are linked to methods. The discussion of the methods used to capture the complexities of practices with a focus on social, cultural and economic layers (Jordan and Henderson 1994; Wagner 1994; Sjöberg 1996; Newman 1998) represents an important resource for a discussion of designers’ interpretative work with both traditional and new experimental methods. In previous chapters we have described our collaborative and multidisciplinary perspectives that are also mirrored in the methods we use in the exploration of practices. These practices are technical, organizational, knowledge-based and socio-cultural. Our aim is to explore and maintain the complexity in design as a mix of all of these.

Abstract [en]

In the twenty-first century, we are literally surrounded by digital things and things that turn out to be digital – or have some digital parts or are parts of a larger system in which there are digital elements. We carry around mobile phones and watches; many also have additional music players, PDAs or PCs. We live in houses filled with digital networks and artefacts; we depend on infrastructures that are partly digital and have digital systems attached to them; we use public and private services that are digital, are based on digital infrastructures and have other digital systems attached to them; and we experience embedded, ubiquitous computing as we live in digitally enhanced environments that support our activities with or without our conscious control. The digital layer(s) in the world constitute a real world.

Abstract [en]

The emerging field of digital design research is heterogeneous, encompassing a multiplicity of practices, theories and methods. One source of this heterogeneity is that design as a concept takes different meanings in the context of different design practices, be it the design of software, urban spaces, web pages or industrial products; as does ‘the digital’ when integrated within different types of design. Another source of heterogeneity is the variety of research traditions, theories and methodologies that meet in digital design research. This book explores the multiplicity and heterogeneity of ‘digital things’, design practices, and (inter) disciplinary approaches.

Abstract [en]

In this paper we discuss sustainability, particularly social and cultural sustainability, in relation to an e-commerce application used in the kitchen of a Swedish public school. The notion of sustainability got its public definition through the Brundtland Commission and the report Our Common Future in which ecological as well as economic and social dimensions were underlined. An additional dimension, culture, has recently unfolded. The data reported in this paper were collected in public school and pre-school meal production. This is a large, institutional, tax-funded activity in Sweden as all pre-schools, compulsory schools and most upper secondary schools serve free lunch to the children and students. We discuss how an e-commerce application complicated the daily routines in the school kitchen rather than making the ordering of food stuff easier or more flexible and how small things that mattered in the staff's day-to-day activities shed light on the application's problems and weaknesses. Following Agenda 21, we relate these shortcomings to sustainability and also to participation. The discussion builds on social and cultural sustainability and participatory design with a focus on the involvement of users in design and implementation of IT systems and services.
