Abstract:
This is a submission to the "Interrogating the social realities of information and communications systems pre-conference workshop, ASIST AM 2006". Context is a key idea in the definition of social informatics. A major aim of the field is identifying the role of information and communication technologies (ICTs) in some social context -- in Society at large, or in more specific and intimate settings. This paper sketches the divergent ways in which context is understood.
