"While devices-as-problem-solvers seek to avoid friction, devices-as-troublemakers seek to create an “aesthetic of friction” that engages users in new ways. Will such extra seconds of thought — nay, contemplation — slow down civilization? They well might. But who said that stopping to catch a breath on our way to the abyss is not a sensible strategy?"

Introduction

As a Phd Researcher in Lancaster University, my research focus lies on the informal commerce of Recife, Brazil and the particular role that ICT (Information and Communication Technology) plays out in the daily work activities of street traders, as well as by City Council officials in their pursuit to formalize this sector and traders’ unions in their efforts to shape what formalisation is to become in practice.
