The Impact of a Discontinuous Innovation: Outcomes Experienced by Owners of Home Computers
Computers in Human Behavior Volume 5, Number 4, ISSN 0747-5632
Offers a framework for conceptualizing the events that follow adoption of innovation. Surveys of home users of microcomputers are described that examined three outcomes of adoption: (1) degree of usage; (2) satisfaction; and (3) attitude toward the technology. Variations in the outcomes are examined, and further research needs are suggested. (46 references) (LRW)
