This paper introduces the early stages of the research conducted by the recently awarded Horizon project (RCUK 2009-14), in which an interdisciplinary team comprising staff from Computer Science, Psychology, Sociology, Business, the Arts and Humanities collaborate with over 36 industrial partners to research and develop new ways to use the electronic ‘footprints’ we leave behind whenever we utilise mobile, internet and other digital technologies.
We focus specifically on one of Horizon’s projects, ‘The Documentation and Archiving of Pervasive Experiences: The case of Rider Spoke’ (2010), which aimed at creating a new tool called ‘CloudPad’ for the annotation of time-based media.
