Lifelong Interactions: My Father's Kitchen Table
HCIL-2008-11

This article introduces a new forum for Interactions Magazine on users at the extremes of life. Articles in this forum will investigate the relationship between children, teenagers, and older adults, with technologies they interact with - from screen-based worlds, to tangible/ubiquitous computing. These interactions may take place at home, in school, at work, or in public places. What will be a critical part of this forum, no matter what the subject matter will be the respect we need to have for users of any age, life experience, with diverse dreams and needs. I introduce this forum topic by discussing my own father's use (and non-use) of a wireless mouse and how some of his challenges compare to those of young users.
