Serendipitous Searching Thesis

"The thesis focuses on what is termed serendipitous searching – i.e. an activity of open browsing for anything that awakens the person’s interest. That means that the people in the study are not just looking for certain things – they are also seeking to come to terms with what they are actually looking for."

"Seeking One's Own: On Encounters Between Individuals and Objects," by Erik Ottoson.
