This project explores how domestic life and the technologies it involves connect individuals to each other and to the home environment in which they live. The focus is on the kind of persons assumed to be embedded in the technologies used everyday in the home; the morality embedded in the technology in relation to that expressed by dilemmas of negotiation in everyday home life; and the kind of methodologies that can be used to explore these issues.. Documentary evidence about developments in the patterns of innovation of selected household technologies, including market reports, magazines, newspaper feature articles, selected interviews and statistical trends has now been collected. Previously collected data, comprising an ethnographic study of 23 families centered on their uses of technologies in domestic everyday life, has also been examined.
