Charting the Digital Lifespan (CDL) is a two-year programme of research that is producing unique insights into the digital lifespan of UK citizens both now and in a future where our young Digital Natives will encounter digital dimensions to key transition points in the human lifespan – becoming an adult, becoming a parent, retiring from work. In this paper, we provide an overview of the CDL project to contribute to discussions with the CHI community about how major life events shape and are shaped by human computer interaction.
