The TA2 vision: Making communications and engagement easier among groups of people separated in space and time. How can technology help to nurture family-to-family relationships? This was the question asked by the collaborative project “Together Anywhere, Together Anytime”(TA2). For many people, families form the key social unit. Many of our enduring experiences, holidays, celebrations and moments of fun and laughter are framed as family events. This is something that current technology does not address well: modern media and communications serve individuals best, with phones, computers and electronic games devices tending to be individually owned and providing individual experiences. TA2 tried to redress this imbalance, by exploring how technology can support group to group communication.
