Outline of method:
E.g., components could be procured in partnership with manufacturers; and
- determine values, e.g., by extracting evaluative material from narratives,
based on Labov's structural theory of narrative.
- use them to determine key situated abstract data types (artificts with
- express these as semiotic systems,
- implement them, and
- define semiotic morphisms for user interfaces.
- Examine natural situations, not what users say they might do.
- Involve stakeholders in all processes as feasible, and
- use iterative development throughout.
end users could be supported in customizing applications, or
programming their own.
Hope this can yield systems that better satisfy users, managers & other
and are ethically produced & used, enhance
society as whole.
