Extended Episodic Experience in Social Mediating Technology: Our Legacy

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 8531)


Drawing from an online survey and a focus group study, we extend the concept of the extended episodic experience to include truly long-term interaction. As our life is still unfolding, we leave many legacies in the flow; both printed and more subtle. Although much effort is being made to preserve digital legacy in online space, we also need to look into the subtle legacy that is equally important in the long-term experience. This subtle legacy is untouchable and often forgotten but it follows us till the very end. Our concern on the consequences of this legacy has led us to suggest the need to design for virtue.
