This paper addresses the impact of the everyday upon an ARC (AustralianResearch Council) project dealing centrally with the Internet in Australian family life. The authors have been centrally involved with ethnographic elements of the research, and thus have continually been confronted by the challenges of the everyday.This paper addresses the nature of those challenges and, in doing 50, seeks to identify some components of the everyday that confound our research expectations-and add richness to our findings.
