dc.description.abstractThis paper is a direct response to recent calls for sustainable technology researchers to use design fiction in their work. It seeks to explore the question: can design fiction be a useful technique for provoking conversations about todays complex global e-waste ecosystem To address that question, the paper begins by presenting an e-waste design fiction in the form of a letter from a fictionally self-aware personal laptop computer to its owner. The letter explores ethical, social, environmental and legal issues related to e-waste, and attempts to provoke readers to reconsider their relationships with electronics. Following the letter, there is a discussion about the research context for this work, initial reactions to it, and some insights that may be used to in future research. This papers novelty stems from its use of a literary e-waste design fiction to provoke conversation, as well as its discussion about design fictions appropriateness for e-waste research.de
