Privacy & The Internet of Things
This lightning talk overviews our research into privacy concerns of New Zealanders around domestic IoT -- smart speakers, smart lights, etc. We explore what are the reasons people use these devices, why they stop using them, and what concerns they have around the devices in their homes. We also identify key areas for future research.

The Power of Play in Virtual Meetings
Presenting online is not the same as presenting on a stage. You can’t ask people to put their screens away and give you their full attention - it is through these screens that your audience is watching you! Unfortunately for leaders, speakers, and teachers, one-way communication is easy to ignore. Zoom fatigue makes our audiences tune out, and highly addictive social media is only a click away. By using the Power of Play, and inviting interaction from your attendees, your next Zoom presentation could be engaging, exciting, and full of smiles.

An Accessible Internet For All
The internet is an amazing tool for connecting communities of people all around the world, helping us enjoy entertainment, participate in government, even access health and education. But the internet isn't always fair and equally accessible to everyone - please spend 5 minutes with me to talk about the importance of making sure we make the internet accessible to everyone. Because if we don't design to remove barriers - we're almost always including them by default.

Queering Games
Can you imagine rugby or football without winners and losers? What about videogames? This talk begins with a lightning overview of LGBTQIA+ ("queer") representation in games, queer games creators, and the sometimes literally life and death issues at stake in queer games and queer gaming. It then considers how queer games redefine winning and losing, not through pacifism but by calling into question whether games (and other players) exist to be "beaten."

Loneliness & The Digital Divide
In June 2020 The Helen Clark Foundation and WSP released Alone Together: The risks of loneliness in Aotearoa New Zealand following Covid-19 and how public policy can help. The report outlined the health and wellbeing risks posed by loneliness, described those most likely to be negatively impacted, sketched the impact of the Level 4 lockdown, and recommended six key policy planks to enable social connection to thrive:
  1. Make sure people have enough money
  2. Close the digital divide
  3. Help communities do their magic
  4. Create friendly streets and neighbourhoods
  5. Prioritise those already lonely
  6. Invest in frontline mental health.
This short video talk will focus on point 2 - the relationship between loneliness and digital inclusion. It will argue that a suitable device with an affordable internet connection should be considered a baseline for social inclusion, and outline key policy recommendations to enable this.

Read the report here, or here (accessible version).
