"This volume offers a range of papers on the user experiences with broadband technologies. It avoids fashionable topics and pays special attention to overlooked areas." (Harmeet Sawhney, Editor-in-Chief, The Information Society) "This volume offers an impressive collection of empirical research. Drawing on experiences across domains and from around the world, the contributors add substantially to the base of knowledge about what humans do with ever-growing access to digital communication resources. They show just how intensely personal ICTs have become." (Professor James E. Katz, Director, Center for Mobile Communication Studies, Rutgers University) "Deploying perspectives from a variety of social sciences, this volume brings together researchers from around Europe and offers a compendium of the latest thoughts and questions on digitally mediated citizenship, networked identity, and sociality in the 21st Century." (Professor Richard Harper, Principal Researcher, MSR Cambridge)
