Abstract

This introductory chapter begins with a brief discussion of the human-technology interaction (HTI) approach. It then explains the rationale behind the compilation of HTI research articles in this volume. A recurring theme across these articles was a desire to not merely inform, but to reform. One can read the pieces collected here simultaneously as an extended complaint and, more importantly, a set of recommendations-or at least object lessons-for how HTI research ought to broaden both its perspective and its practical, even moral, aspirations.
