So who here brings their tama babies to work? I'm 23, I work as a cashier at Petco, and I keep my 4U in my pocket while i'm working. On monday it'll be my new mix's first time out! I mostly pull it out on my break, and sometimes my co-workers will ask what it is, or they'll say something like "Oh, my daughter had one of those!" I'm kinda shy so I usually try to keep it to myself.. Not because I think it's silly but because I have no idea what they'll think or say. Do you take your tamas to work with you? Share your stories!
Hi! My name is Catherine Caudwell and I am a researcher in the School of Design at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. I would like to invite Tamatalk community members to participate in my PhD research project. The Stories Tell Objects Project aims to understand the role that storytelling plays in people's interactions with electronic companions - such as Hasbro’s Furby - and the relationships we form with them. Participation includes responding in writing to various images and videos, and/or completing 2 short questionnaires. It should hopefully be a fun and creative exercise! If you would like to learn more, or are interested in participating in this study, please visit: www.storiestellobjects.net I would greatly appreciate any input from fans of electronic companions and virtual pets. Thank you for your attention and consideration. Kind regards, Catherine Caudwell PhD Candidate School of Design Victoria University Wellington 6011 New Zealand
