Its originality comes from contributing a practice-led design research perspective to an interdisciplinary colloquium that involved media studies academics, artists, historians of technology, ethnographers, etc.;
its rigour comes from the strength and reputation of the Media at McGill group who are behind the colloquium and this subsequent publication;
its significance comes from the increasing importance of participation, both in design practice and within other fields, facilitated by––but also shaping––social media and other digital technologies. It is an increasing theme in my own disability-related research (see 'Socio-technical materials for prosthetic hands' and 'Mapping my day' proposals in preparation), in which there is a political angle: "Nothing about us without us" is a slogan first coined by James Charlton in Berkeley as part of the disability rights movement.
