The "Space" of Computing

Thesis by weiwei (2018)

Our conception of “computing” has changed and continues to change. This work identifies dimensions that constitute the “space of computing”.


Currently, only those who have a programming background or resources have the ability to create digital artifacts. This forces the rest of the world to be consumers, rather than creators or authors. When creating digital products, our conception of target audience is “users”. The notion of “users” sometimes assumes that their main goal is consuming instead of playing, creating, or conversing. What if the digital environment was inclusive enough for anyone to create? How can we provide the tools that will enable everyone to become authors?
