This thesis investigates five families in Boston who have introduced computers into their homes. The analysis is interdisciplinary and each case has been considered in terms of psycho-social and architectural terms. The conclusions address issues of control, gender relations, feelings toward computers, and architectural constraints to easy adaptation to the computer. The thesis concludes that the computer is not just a machine that one takes out of its box and plugs in. There are many considerations in bringing computers into the home.
