Design for the Computer Obsessive

What happens when a proportion of the people using a new technology see it to be so enticing that they are willing to sacrifice every other aspect of their lives in order to engage with it?
In most instances, people can comfortably moderate their use of computers and the Internet. Occasionally however, some individuals feel compelled to indulge to an excessive degree, disrupting their lives and fracturing relationships. This uncontrolled behaviour displays many characteristics of addiction.
‘Design For the Computer Obsessive’ centers on the role design can play in guiding these individuals through their turbulent affair with the technology.
