A.N.Whitehead Does HCI :-)

Transitions in human–computer interaction: from data embodiment to experience capitalism” out now in AI & SOCIETY.

This “experimental” article was written after the Streams of Consciousness conference at Warwick in 2016 where I tried to get Gramsci to do HCI. After spending the summer reading lots of Whitehead related material, HCI and UX texts on a boiling hot visit to Lisbon and Porto, it’s an attempt to do the same with Whitehead. I guess there might be a few HCI types out there scratching their heads on this one, but it is an experiment 🙂

The good news is that the publisher lets you publicly share the full-text (view-only version) of your paper even if you or your institution didn’t pay for the full Open Access option (download and print the PDF).

“There are no restrictions on the number of people you may share this link with, how many times they can view the linked article or where you can post the link online.”

Better than no access at all.
