BookLog: Technologies As Social Beings

From Sketching User Experiences by Bill Buxton

As technology becomes more and more pervasive, it is finding itself in increasingly diverse and specialized contexts. Te technologies that we design do not, and never will, exist in a vacuum.

As much as people, technologies need to be thought of as social beings, and in a social context.
