PCs in Bed & Beyond: Genevieve Bell, Intel’s Top Anthropologist
Mobile computing is literally going to bed with users, so at the cool BED club in New York, PodTech’s Michael Johnson literally hopped into bed with Genevieve Bell, a senior researcher and anthropologist for Intel. She’s the director of Intel’s user experience group for Digital Home. Bell and a team of anthropologists traveled the world in a 36 country study of how technology is used on an everyday and personal level.
Reporter’s Notes: Here’s a job I would love traveling the world and interviewing folks about their habits, lives, and how they use their gadgets. Bell is sharp funny and thoughtful. Her bio links out to some of the papers she’s written on her research on technology, religion, and behavior.
