An individual information system is an activity system in which individual persons, according to idiosyncratic needs and preferences, perform processes and activities using information, technology, and other resources to produce informational products and/or services for themselves or others. These small information systems have evolved with increasing complexity around the increasing computing power available to individuals. This paper provides an influence model of premises for theorizing the design activity in these individual systems. The influence model is grounded on previous research related to such systems.
