In a global networked world, information and communication technologies interact with the most fundamental processes of the society and our everyday life. Information society technologies are used and appropriated in a cultural, social, and historical context. They are used in ways that are meaningful for their users. In a multicultural, diversified and global world, the design of information society technologies, products and policies requires deep understanding of the cultural, social, and historical roots of meaning.
