iChoice: Value-Sensitive Human-Computer Interaction Design
Tony A. Moore
ASIS&T Annual Meeting - 2006 (ASIS&T 2006)
Austin, Texas, November 3-9, 2006
This work looks at the design and use of peer-to-peer file sharing software as a vehicle for examining sociotechnical interactions, particularly how values influence the design and use of technologies. By studying peer-to-peer network use it is my hope that issues of personal and community values align with their stated moral objectives. Guided by Value-Sensitive Design (VSD) and Participatory Design (PD) theories, I have developed, designed, and evaluated a new application that takes into account stated user values throughout each phase of the design process. Results showed that when an application explicitly incorporates user feedback, said users will have a more enjoyable experience and will be more likely to choose those technologies that reflect their values.
