The Digital Imprimatur
. Indeed, the large organisations which previously had a near monopoly on computers often found themselves using antiquated equipment inferior in performance to systems used by teenagers to play games.. Computer bulletin board systems, FidoNet, and UUCP/USENET store and forward mail and news systems decentralised communication among personal computer users, culminating in the explosive growth of individual Internet access in the latter part of the 1990's.. Beyond direct analogues to broadcasting, the peer to peer architecture of the Internet allowed creation of entirely new kinds of media--discussion boards, scientific preprint repositories, web logs with feedback from readers, collaborative open source software development, audio and video conferences, online auctions, music file sharing, open hypertext systems, and a multitude of other kinds of spontaneous human interaction.. Due to the risk malicious programs pose to individual users and the Internet, priority will be given to securing them but, with the advent of Digital Rights Management (see below), similar provisions will apply to all kinds of data stored on computer systems.

Socio-digital-Systems _ SOCIO-DIGITAL SYSTEMS Socio-Digital Systems (SDS) is one of three groups that make up (CML).. In supporting everyday life we want to go beyond simple metaphors to daily life (such as bringing the desktop onto your computer screen) and to exploit our familiarity and facility with the everyday world — the physical world and the social world — to inform the design of new hardware and software systems.. In the Socio-Digital Systems Group we believe that we can leverage new opportunities for user behaviour by making some of the invisible properties of virtual landscapes visible.. Extended Abstracts of Conference on Human Factors and Computing systems, CHI ’06.. Studies of home life In our general studies of home life, we have been investigating the work done in and around family households, and focused, specifically, on what we refer to as organising systems (see ).. These systems come to operate in two ways.. Looking at the organising systems surrounding specific artefacts and activities in the home, such as fridge doors, clutter, photographs, list making, etc., we have sought to raise questions about the assumed role of computing in everyday life.
