    Media infrastructures and (un)readiness-to-hand2019In: Infrastructures and Inequalities: Media Industries, Digital Cultures and Politics: Book of Abstracts, 2019, p. 10-10Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to explore a development of the concept “ready-to-hand” in relation to media infrastructures. Following an (mostly) American/pragmatic reception of Heidegger (Dreyfus, Blattner) I will discuss how “unready-to-hand”, the mode of being of equipment that fail to fulfill its purpose, can be a useful concept to approach the phenomenon of technological breakdown and planned obsolescence that are part of present day everyday life with technologies. In the process of disclosing these fundamental structures of the information society, the infrastructure’s aspect as equipment serves as object for contemplation (they are there, we rely on them, but in the conducts of everyday life we seldom think about them). In the terminology of Martin Heidegger this mode of being of equipment can be understood as “ready-to-hand” (Heidegger 1927). However, following Hubert Dreyfus’ development of Heideggerean phenomenology, one could also talk about "unreadiness-to-hand" (Blattner 2006) as the way equipment reveal themselves. When equipment fulfill their purpose they are transparent, they become part of the activity in which they are being put to use, but when they do not fulfill their purpose we suddenly become aware of them -- the transparency is lost. A common example is a hammer that is too heavy or too big to use. When it comes to the everyday life of information society the unreadiness-to-hand is an all-too-familiar experience: incompatibility between different applications, constant upgrades that renders hardware obsolete, slow Internet-connections etc are common features of technology. Hence living in a culture that heavily relies on equipment that cannot be fully trusted requires strategies and attitudes to deal with this constant threat of malfunction. How do we secure ontological security, continuity, integrity and memory in all this?

    Smart jewellery: measuring the unknown2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Self-tracking devices and apps often measure and provide interpretations of personal data in a rather straightforward way, for instance by visualising the speed and distance of a run or the quality of sleep during a night. There is however a growing number of devices that take the data analysis further by providing insights and algorithmic advices about domains of our lives that are otherwise thought of as difficult to grasp. This paper explores two devices of this kind, namely the Moodmetric and the ŌURA which are two recently released smart rings with associated mobile apps that claim to measure emotions and rest, promote happiness and help users to perform better. Whereas several studies have shed light over how users engage with self-tracking apps and devices, little attention has been paid to how these technologies stem from dreams, hopes and imaginaries of designers and developers. This paper approaches self-tracking from a producer perspective in order to frame how users and their everyday lives are imagined by designers and how these assumptions are built into the technologies. Empirically, the paper is based on a content analysis of blog posts, marketing materials and user guides from the ŌURA and Moodmetric companies along with video interviews with company representatives as well as recordings of their public appearances. Engaging with the field of software studies as well as the emerging field of self-tracking studies, this paper aims at providing a basis for further design oriented studies of self-tracking.

    Web-supported product concept development2005In: Proceedings ICED 05, the 15th International Conference on Engineering Design, 2005, Vol. DS 35Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Web-based activities are becoming more and more common. Telephoning free of charge over the Internet (IP - Internet Protocol) has become much used within a short period of time. In a similar way videoconferences can be held in an inexpensive way over the Internet. Equally, radio and TV broadcasting over Internet will become more and more common. It should be possible to use inexpensive web-based support both during the creation of a new product concept and during the following product development. However, two types of dilemma exist: the mental problem and technological problems. In tests in late 2004 and early 2005 we have found that mentally related problems seem to be the most difficult ones to overcome as most people found it of outmost importance to meet in person to be creative. We have also experienced that the technology still is not good enough for combined IP-based meetings. However, the latter is a technology problem that seems easier to be solved. We have experienced that using web-based support can be beneficial in many ways. We believe that in the future the web will be used even in the creative process to bring forward product concepts. As it offers global cooperation without expensive and time consuming travelling, it is of great interest to innovative enterprises.

    Designing Ubiquitous Media Services: Exploring the Two-Sided Market of Newspapers2016In: Journal of Theoretical and Applied Electronic Commerce Research, ISSN 0718-1876, E-ISSN 0718-1876, Vol. 11, no 3, p. 1-19Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The two-sided market of newspapers with its two customer groups, readers and advertisers, is changing due to digitalization. This former stable and profitable market has lately suffered from both decreasing subscription and advertiser revenue. In this paper we use the term ubiquitous media environments to represent the vision of future media environments enabling device independent mass-scale distribution of ubiquitous media services in integrated infrastructures. We build upon a two-year action research project where researchers worked together with the Swedish newspaper industry to envision future ubiquitous media services and explore the following research question: how can ubiquitous media services be designed to leverage and balance value in a two-sided market? Five examples of ubiquitous media services were developed in collaboration and thereafter evaluated. These services were then illustrated in movie clips to trigger discussions on how ubiquitous media services can be designed. Drawing on the value aspects of ubiquitous media services from an advertiser and reader point-of-view and the platform owner role of the newspapers in a future ubiquitous media environments, we describe and discuss how ubiquitous media services can be designed to leverage value for advertisers and readers, and how newspaper organizations can strategize ubiquitous media environments. © 2016 Universidad de Talca - Chile

    Velody - A novel method for music steganography2017In: 2017 3rd International Conference on Frontiers of Signal Processing (ICFSP 2017): September 6-8, 2017, Paris, France, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017, p. 15-19Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study describes a new method for musical steganography utilizing the MIDI format. MIDI is a standard music technology protocol that is used around the world to create music and make it available for listening. Since no publicly available method for MIDI steganography has been found (even though there are a few methods described in the literature), the study investigates how a new algorithm for MIDI steganography can be designed so that it satisfies capacity and security criteria. As part of the study, a method for using velocity values to hide information in music has been designed and evaluated, during which the capacity of the method is found to be comparable with similar methods. In an audibility test, it is observed that audible impact on the music can not be distinguished at any reasonable significance level, which means that also a security criterion is met. © 2017 IEEE.
