We live in a contemporary media culture in which computing practices such as word processing and online searching have become fully integrated in our everyday routines and social activities. The aim of Niels Kerssens’s research is to deepen our historical understanding of the emergence of our individualised use-relationships with the machine. He investigates the cultural transformations that took place in the period between the early 1970s and late 1980s, when computing started to move out of organisations and into our homes and everyday lives.
