    In order to analyze contemporary archival practices related to personal digital media use, I reflected on what the notion of “user generations” might elucidate. To do so, I proposed a working definition of user generation as: “a set of relations that connects a specific (group of) technologies with specific user groups which allows us to think about the emergence of a specific cultural practice, and how this set of relations transforms into a new user generation, whenever new user groups and/or new technologies interact and establish new or changing practices”.
