Orchestrating negotiation

Every YUTPA possesses possibilities for action and distinct possibilities for feedback that designers can use. Also, an action in one kind of presence may have feedback in another. People need to be able to act and need to receive feedback. Feedback, the 're-action' to the action, occurs in a certain time frame within a certain period, and it occurs in a certain space, which through the action, is related to the place where the action originated. Feedback can be noticed or not. Feedback, which aims to create moral commitment when dealing with mediated presences and witnessed presences, has to be orchestrated in such a way that natural presence is involved. Boundary objects can translate between different possible presences.

n the exploratory case studies described in chapter 3 and 4, I found that the editing of vital information and the orchestration of the crucial network are prerequisites for generating collective authored outcomes that will sustain possibilities for survival and well-being. It is by formulating in which YUTPA one is operating, which other YUTPA's interfere or contribute and how the yet to be designed YUTPA's should contribute, that the relationships between our physical well-being and our environment, whether or not it is cluttered with mediated presences, will be clarified.

The introduction of YUTPA as a conceptual framework implies that vital information and crucial networks are not only 'content matter', but also that the structure of time, place, action and the other in any piece of information and communication, is significant. It determines whether a piece of information and/or communication will generate the vitality that we seek, in what way it can influence the negotiation about trust and truth in a certain context. YUTPA is an attempt to deconstruct the 'blur' that techno-diversity creates, a 'blur' that consists of technologies which aim to conquer 'global markets' and invade millions of day-to-day lives.
