The Digital Construction of Technology

Date: November 06, 2012     Category: publications


The latest issue of Technology and Culture is out, and features an essay of mine entitled “The Digital Construction of Technology: Rethinking the History of Computers in Society,” in which, among other things, I posit the existence of a virtual Bruno Latour! The article is both an exploration of the existing historiography in the history of computing and a call for a renewed focus on the role of technology in changing work practices. The pretty, journal-format article can be found here and I believe is, for the moment at least, open access. If not, you can find an online edition outside the firewall
