My position paper “Public policy impact on interaction design in networked environments” has been accepted for the workshop organized by the SIGCHI US Public Policy Committee (SIGCHI is the Computer- Human Interaction special interest group (SIGCHI) of the ACM). I need to make some changes to the paper but it basically talks about the possible changes on the Internet infrastructure that could affect the end user experience.
Some of the topics worth discussing:
- Network neutrality (see previous post)
- How network neutrality (or the lack of it) would impact user experience with his activities online
- the opportunity to give more information about the network connection and more control to the user
- Do we need new laws and what should these laws say?
