Title: Talking 'Activity': Young People and Mobile Phones
Author: Alex S. Taylor and Richard Harper
Publication: CHI 2001 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, Seattle, 31 March-5 April 2001
Abstract or Excerpt: The authors take the position that the nature of work and domestic life raise important implications for the design of mobilecommunication technologies. They believe, however, that understandings of everyday life must be carefully interpreted forthe purposes of design. In the presented position paper, they describe the findings from an ethnographic study of young people and mobile phones. They then present a brief description of activity theory and explain how such a theory might beused to interpret qualitative descriptions of mobile phone use in young people's every day lives. Through the paper, the authors aim to illustrate that a systematic method of eliciting design considerations can be achieved by employing an activity theory framework. The authors also suggest that more detailed design requirements can be identified through future studies and analyses. It is hoped that the preliminary findings from these follow-up studies will be ready for presentation at the CHI, Mobile Communications Workshop.

Title: Going Wireless: Behavior & Practice of New Mobile Phone Users
Author: Leysia Palen, Marilyn Salzman, and Ed Youngs
Publication: Proceedings of the ACM Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW 2000), Philadelphia, PA
Abstract or Excerpt: We report on the results of a study in which 19 new mobilephone users were closely tracked for the first six weeks afterservice acquisition. Results show that new users tend torapidly modify their perceptions of social appropriatenessaround mobile phone use, that actual nature of usefrequently differs from what users initially predict, and thatcomprehension of service-oriented technologies can beproblematic. We describe instances and features of mobiletelephony practice. When in use, mobile phones occupymultiple social spaces simultaneously, spaces with normsthat sometimes conflict: the physical space of the mobilephone user and the virtual space of the conversation.
