From the LA Times:
UC Irvine is home to a new $12.5-million research center funded by chip maker Intel Corp., the company announced Tuesday. The center, named the Intel Science and Technology Center for Social Computing, applies social science and the humanities to the design and analysis of digital information. The center opened on June 1. "Technology is profoundly entangled with our everyday lives. As researchers, we can't get a handle on what's going on by looking at technical factors alone," said UC Irvine professor Paul Dourish, who will co-lead the center. "We have to study them in concert with human, social and cultural aspects."
