    Efter The Pirate Bay2010 (ed. 1)Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    En bok om fildelningens teknik, politik, juridik och moral. Hur ska vi förhålla oss till vår nya digitala verklighet?

    Förstår vi kraften i Internet bäst genom en uppsättning av illasinnade repressiva förkortningar (Ipred, FRA, Acta) eller genom en förutsättningslös politisk diskussion kring vilket slags lagstiftning som ska gälla för den digitala domänen? De svenska riksdagspartiernas växlande syn på fildelning och upphovsrätt har under de senaste åren flankerats av nya, och mer radikala sätt att betrakta frågan.

    Boken för ett resonemang om vår nya digitala verklighet. Ett antal skribenter nalkas ämnet från olika utgångspunkter och ger en bred bild av vad som är annorlunda i vår tid; efter Pirate Bay. Redaktörer är Jonas Andersson och Pelle Snickars.

    Lek och allvar: Om pokerspelande på nätet2006Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study explores the relatively new phenomenon of online poker. More specifically, it elaborates on who the online poker player is, why s/he plays online poker, what the fascination of the game is, why s/he continues to play, and what the experience is. The study is delimited to focus on individuals who mainly play Texas hold’em online. The empirical material is based on semi-structured interviews with active online poker players, as well as on secondary data such as articles and literature. Both professional and amateur players are included among the respondents. The material has been coded and qualitatively analyzed. Earlier studies in the same field have also been brought to light and discussed, among which we especially centered on Reith’s theories about gambling and the gambler. Finally, the study concludes that the four factors primarily motivating the online poker player are excitement, money, social interaction, and the aspect of skill.

    Jag kanske är lite nörd...: En uppsats om genus, spel och identitet2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to elucidate the interests of five women regarding their relation to video and computer games, as well as how they intend to talk about games as reflecting a part of their own identity. The questions asked to empirics concerns the informants´ intrinsic experiences of games as an interest, and which conclusions that can be drawn according to these results. Further on, through the stories retold by the informants, an insight of what is normative within this specific sphere is provided. In addition, the important question of how the current normative conceptions in the field will affect the identity of the women is raised, and thereby possibilities and restrictions revealed, in relation to the interests of the informants and presuppositions of the surrounding society. The paper displays that there is not only one single norm for a female Gamer but also a normative femininity one should apply as a woman in the field. The survey also suggests that the informants often are referred to as deviant, both in a positive or a negative manner. This, moreover, seem to affect the internal identity processes of the informants as well as their strategies used to retain this specific interest.

    Islands of Togetherness: Rewriting Context Analysis2007Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    A continuing debate within Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) research is how to elucidate, improve, and optimize the relationship between social context and technology use. Social context is conventionally understood as immediate use context while an understanding informed by social science suggests a wider scope, involving actors and structures.

    The focus of this thesis is the use of a communication environment using audio and video, established to span and connect three geographically distant call-centre workplaces in the Stockholm archipelago, Sweden. The research was carried out as intermittent fieldwork, spanning unevenly over a period of three years. The fieldwork was carried out at two sites: the premises of the Swedish Police Contact Centre in the archipelago and within the research project Community at a Distance. Methods included participant observation, interviews, and the analysis of documents, everyday talk, and images.

    This thesis offers a broad analysis of the socio-cultural context of technology use investigating the question how a sense of togetherness is promoted and negotiated at the Swedish Police Contact Centre and around and across the communication environment. The technology served as a means of overcoming the distance between the sites and making everyday encounters between the dispersed staff members possible. The sense of togetherness—fellowship and belonging, caring for each other, fostering a sense of solidarity, and achieving consensus in everyday practices—had an impact on the uses (and non-uses) of the technology. The use of the communication environment reflects the values and arrangements of the workplace and reproduces its conventions. The discussion is explorative, outlining an analytical approach to the socio-cultural context of technology use informed by interpretive social science, and provides a partial analysis of the organizational culture of the Contact Centre and its technology use. The argument is that analysis should aim at exploring the relationship between individual actors and social structures. Rewriting context allows us to understand the socio-cultural embeddedness of technology. While the analytic framework is not comprehensive for the purpose of detailed design implications in HCI research, it does provide a reconsidered terminology that links individual practices to socio-cultural context.

    Framtiden2011 (ed. 1)Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [sv]

    »Länge trodde jag att framtiden var ljus. Jag var en av de frälsta. I datorn såg jag en vän, i digitaliseringen fann jag ett hopp, på internet upptäckte jag en ny värld. När arbetet med den här boken inleddes för snart tre år sedan uppfattade jag en enorm potential i den rörelse som växte sig allt starkare omkring mig. Jag såg ett samhälle som skulle kunna bli helt nytt, mer demokratiskt, mer genomlyst, mer upplyst. Allt som kan digitaliseras kommer att digitaliseras. Detta var jag övertygad om. Jag skulle bara skriva boken som beskrev detta.

    Men under resans gång insåg vi att allt inte stod rätt till med framtiden. Vi omfamnade löftet om den för att vi trodde att vi skulle finna en ny frihet. Men det vi byggde var vårt eget fängelse. Det som från början var tänkt att bli en lättsam betraktelse över digitaliseringens möjligheter har istället blivit en skönlitterär dystopi med essäistiska inslag. Det blev en varningsskrift till alla som på ett eller annat sätt gjort datorn till en del av sin vardag.« 

    Framtiden är en berättelse om vår tid, berättad från framtiden. På 136 sidor försöker kulturjournalisten Eric Schüldt och medievetaren Jonas Andersson visa vad som håller på att hända runt omkring oss.  

    »När maskinerna tog över gjorde de det på ett så snabbt, mjukt och användarvänligt sätt, att bara en dåre eller en profet skulle ha vågat klaga.«

    Föreställningar om informationssamhället under 1980-talets första hälft: transkript av ett vittnesseminarium vid Tekniska museet i Stockholm den 27 maj 20082008Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The witness seminar “Föreställningar om informationssamhället under 1980-talets första hälft” [Ideas about the Information Society during the first half of the 1980s] was held at the National Museum of Science and Technology in Stockholm on May 27 2008 and was led by Crister Skoglund and Bernt Skovdahl. The panel consisted of representatives both of those who around 1980 were enthusiastic for, and those who were sceptically against, the belief that we were entering the Information Society. Two projects were discussed regarding new ways to use computers; TERESE and KOM. The first one mentioned was an attempt to facilitate cooperation between entrepreneurs and the second one was a computer forum for open discussions. In many ways they foreboded what later became everyday practice on the Internet, but at this time they were questioned. Not at least the idea to use big and expensive mainframe computers for such a “simple” task as to let ordinary people communicate with each other. During the seminar those who had been sceptical to the term “Information Society” stated however, that they were not against using computers for communication between ordinary people, but opposed the grand claims made by those who equalised an “Information Society” with a “Knowledge Society”. The sceptics found their theories of knowledge naïve and challengeable. In Sweden we thus got an epistemological debate outside the academic philosophical circles that has implications to this day. A third theme in the seminar was the attitude to computers in the Swedish labour movement. A shift from a positive view, over a more doubtful period around 1980, back to a new positive attitude could be noted. From 1985 the main doctrine was that the workers should conquer the new technology instead of opposing it.

    Post-Industrial Landscape Scars2014 (ed. 1)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Post-industrial landscape scars are traces of 20th century utopian visions of society; they relate to fear and resistance expressed by popular movements and to relations between industrial workers and those in power. The metaphor of the scar pinpoints the inherent ambiguity of memory work by signifying both positive and negative experiences, as well as the contemporary challenges of living with these physical and mental marks. In this book, Anna Storm explores post-industrial landscape scars caused by nuclear power production, mining, and iron and steel industry in Malmberget, Kiruna, Barsebäck and Avesta in Sweden; Ignalina and Visaginas/Sniečkus in Lithuania/former Soviet Union; and Duisburg in the Ruhr district of Germany. The scars are shaped by time and geographical scale; they carry the vestiges of life and work, of community spirit and hope, of betrayed dreams and repressive hierarchical structures. What is critical, Storm concludes, is the search for a legitimate politics of memory. The meanings of the scars must be acknowledged. Past and present experiences must be shared in order shape new understandings of old places.

    Why is design "Made in the USSR" invisible in design history2013In: Crafting the Future: 10th European Academy of Design Conference April 17-19 2013 in Gothenburg, 2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In order to find out whether "the core actitivites" that constitute our canon of design history "have changed" or not - we need to look closer at what constitutes that very canon.

    In the literature, the standard account of design is usually linked to increased sales curves. When applying the market economy as a model, the hitherto most frequently used model in design studies, Eastern Bloc designers come to resemble little more than embarrassing imitators of their more advanced Western counterparts.

    So far, the countries behind the iron curtain have been invisible in the design literature. Is the reason for this because design did not play any role at all in these countries? But what if it did - what tools would be required to make this design visible on its own terms? And could it even be so that there is something for us to be learned from the design experience from behind the iron curtain?

    This paper will present VNIITE, the Federal Scientific Research Institute for Technical Esthetics, the only design institute in the Soviet Union and the biggest research institute for design world-wide. VNIITE, founded in Moscow in 1962, promoted a new attitude towards industrial production. A short introduction will be given to the prerequisites of the institute as well as of its major ideas. Informed by sources that include studies on technology as well as on economics and culture it will give an alternative perspective as to how the Soviet Union tackled the competition to “catch up and surpass America”.

    From the Hope of Engineering Nature to the Fear of Environmental Destruction: Imagining the Oresund Bridge (1950s-1990s)2019Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims at presenting some aspects of the approach to natural environment in Sweden and Denmark in the second half of the twentieth century. It does so by analysing the hopes and fears generated by several societal actors when imagining the building of an engineering megastructure: the Oresund bridge, a project aimed at uniting the shores of the two states on the Oresund Straight. The bridge was built in the year 2000, but it has been imagined and planned since the nineteenth century by those who hoped to shorten the distance between Sweden and the continent and to produce major freedom of mobility of persons and goods across the Sound. Until the late 1960s, domesticating and exploiting the natural environment in order to favour the societal exigencies was still considered unproblematic. Only since the late 1960s the paradigm of engineering shifted from an anthropocentric perspective to a more sceptic view over the overexploitation of nature. Engineering the Oresund with tons of concrete and metal structures in order to favour car traffic was no more considered as a human victory upon the tyranny of nature, but as an irresponsible act. Concerns over the project were raised by scientists of the most diverse disciplines and by the local communities, which started the first “green wave” in the early seventies, soon followed by the bourgeois parties. The environmental concerns grew since the 1980s into a more general critique of liberalism, of capitalism and of the European Community, making of the Oresund bridge an ambivalent symbol to whom environmentalists reacted in different ways.
