Abstract:
These reflections were originally stimulated by the brouhaha that followed the introduction of video data into
HCI's research methods in the late 1980s and early 1990s and have lain mouldering in my filing cabinet ever
since. When I look at them now, I see that the same order of consideration could well be offered to illuminate
or give pause for thought to many current research endeavours associated with investigations of collaborative
tools and technologies such as multi-user agents, recommender systems and of course knowledge
management systems. They too traffic in personal information which is not so much given as 'given off'. So in
the hope that its arguments remain fresh and lively, I have rescued this Note from the oblivion which would
otherwise have been its fate.
