The Desk as a Social Institution

Tyson
In this paper, I document some provisional findings of an empirical sociological investigation on the desks and desk users of a systems research laboratory. The sociological descriptions are offered in contrast to the approaches to desks and desk users developed by other disciplines, some of whose findings are described first. The paper is offered within the context of the on-going development of computer interfaces surrounding the desk-top metaphor, but design implications of the research are not pursued.
