Personal Information Infrastructures for Everyday Lived Experience: A Challenge for the Future

Jennie Carroll
University of Melbourne, Australia


Abstract
This paper presents one possibility for the future of technology-supported mobility. It draws upon findings of a series of field studies of mobile technology use undertaken since 2001 to construct the concept of ‘personal information infrastructures’ that support people’s everyday lived experience. Underpinning the concept is the belief that we should shift our focus from studying individual technologies and their application to narrow sets of activities or purposes. Rather, it suggests that we should study everyday experience and generate ways that combinations of technology can support the breadth of needs, purposes and contexts that characterise our lives. Some of the implications of this vision are discussed and future research areas are outlined.
