Abstract

Faculty leave proposal. Daily interactions with software are an unavoidable fact of modern life. Some of these interactions are explicit, such as, when you are working at a personal computer reading email, composing documents or finding information from the World Wide Web. In these situations most people would acknowledge that they are dealing with a piece of software. The predominant daily interactions with software are not as explicit however. With these interactions you do not have the perception that you are dealing with a “computer”. Rather you perceive that you are using another piece of equipment, such as, a microwave oven to heat your meal, the brake pedal in your car to bring it to a stop at the next intersection, or a pacemaker which generates an imperceptible pulse to keep your heart beating in normal sinus rhythm.
