        From: "Mats Dahlström" <Mats.Dahlstrom at hb.se>
        Subject: Human IT 10.2

Dear all,

A new issue (10.2) of Human IT is now available at
 http://etjanst.hb.se/bhs/ith//2-10/index.htm . Although properly
speaking a non-thematic collection of articles, the contributions in
this issue share a common interest in communicative practices. We have
two articles on texting (Iversen and Balakrishnan), one on chatting
(Otnes), and one on mediation between technology design and use (Iivari
et al.). Together they provide diverse and invigorating examples of just
how many different ways there are to use, study, and understand some of
the latest forms of information and communication technologies (ICTs)
that have come to permeate our lives and social interactions, such as
the mobile phone, MSN Messenger, and the endless parade of information
systems entering and exiting most of today’s organisations. The
perspectives applied range from treating the ICTs and their uses as
generators of text corpora; as tools for remediated conversations; as
knowledge resources for technology design and development; and as
characterised by gaps between communities and contexts that need to be

Enjoy your reading!
