The HomeNet project is a nationally acclaimed research project investigating the effect of the Internet on people's lives, especially social phenomena. The findings have been reported in CNN, the New York Times, USA Today, and many other places. Both Robert Kraut and Sara Kiesler, the PIs on the project, have recieved the CHI Academy Award partially for their work on this project.

There is also a spinoff project called the Movers project which is studying the usage of the Internet as people move to a new location, and the effects of the Internet and the move on people's lives.

But for all that, I just developed the technology behind the extra-long and complicated web surveys used for the research. They're darn good web surveys, though :)
