Mediated values in Swedish Municipality Website Design
2005 (English)In: The ethicomp decade 1995-2005, 2005Conference paper (Refereed)
Not only in Sweden are governments designing and maintaining web sites, this to be able to improve interaction with their citizens. It is therefore important to choose the best suiting website design, communicating the intended values. In this paper two Swedish municipality front pages are compared with respect to mediated user roles, user groups, action space (action possibilities and restrictions), and communicated producer intent. This highlights how values can be mediated in website design.
