What is Social Informatics and Why Does it Matter?

A serviceable working conception of "social informatics" is that it identifies a body of research that examines the social aspects of computerization. A more formal definition is "the interdisciplinary study of the design, uses and consequences of information technologies that takes into account their interaction with institutional and cultural contexts." Social informatics has been a subject of systematic analytical and critical research for the last 25 years.

Looking to Go the Last Mile

When it comes to telecom competition in Europe, there's just no going all the way. Sure, the disbanding of PTT monopolies has given customers more long-distance and international options. But they're still not seeing all the lucre that deregulation was supposed to put in their pockets. The problem is the proverbial last mile. Incumbent carriers may have loosened their grip elsewhere, but they're still holding on tight on the local loop.

Future-Proof Your IT Organization

Your company's IT department may be doing little more in 2005 than providing bandwidth for the rest of the organization. Sound bleak? Start upgrading your status now. United Technologies' CIO Jim Lloyd says it will be tougher and tougher to distinguish an IT person from a business person. Lloyd says he believes there will be a central IT function, but it will be diminished in scope and responsible mainly for providing bandwidth for mission-critical Web applications.

Ed. - For those looking past the millennium bug, consider this: as the use and understanding of technology spreads, IT departments will shrink and become more prone to being outsourced.

Windows: Linux's Secret Weapon

Unless you've been living under a boulder on Pluto the last few months, you're probably quite aware of the sudden tsunami of interest in Linux. While the mere existence of Linux is reason enough to believe in the power of the Little Guy, the most compelling aspect of this phenomenon for me is how Linux will ultimately affect mainstream desktop computing. This, of course, brings us to Microsoft Windows, the topic around which all conversations regarding this particular market eventually orbit.

Ed. - A very cerebral look at the implications of Linux gaining future market share.

Impeachment and the Role of the Net

Some historians think the Internet is the first technological tool capable of shifting the balance in America away from our Republican form of government in which a ruling class calls the shots. Could the Internet shrink our vast country, ushering in a more democratic form of government? In short, can the Internet put the "demos" back in democracy? Or is the Net merely a conduit for rapidly disseminating unfiltered allegations of political wrongdoing?

Ed. - The union of politics and the net is inevitable, much like e-commerce was.

Talking Cure

We know there are certain Valued Readers who hate it when we interview ourselves in this fashion. But then, some percentage of you hates at least one of the many genres with which we have experimented over the years, so it pretty much doesn't matter which form we choose. Of course, you don't have to read this tacky suite of interrogatories, and for that you should count yourself lucky. We, in contrast, did have to write it. We had no choice in the matter. It was either write or die of ennui.

Ed. - Fortunately, you have the choice whether to read this or not with no fear of a terminal illness.

Local Start-ups Deprived of Funds

Like many in the Australian Internet industry, I am ecstatic to see money finally being put into high-tech start-ups as well as existing businesses But the volatile nature of the present batch of ASX Net Stocks is a sign that their fortunes (and those of future start ups) may still lie with one bad press article or event from overseas, leaving any new IPO without the backup that an institutional investor can give a company.

Home Office Harmony

Getting down to work one recent Monday morning, graphic artist and illustrator Conni Porter stared in disbelief at the altered state of her Macintosh desktop. Her icons had morphed unrecognizably, the screen colors were all wrong, and her files were taking forever to open and close. Porter is a work-at-home parent, and she'd run afoul of a hazard unknown to her office-bound contemporaries -- namely, her inquisitive kids.

San Francisco Turns Back Marines

San Francisco last week pulled the plug on a Marine Corps proposal to use neighboring national parklands as the site for a major military exercise designed to test cutting-edge information technologies in an urban environment.

The Little Engine That Couldn't

It is ELEVEN feet long, seven feet tall, and weighs three tons. It is one of history's great might-have-beens, an eerie reminder of a technological dead end, the failed catalyst of a revolution that never was. This month, 150 years later than planned, work is finally underway to complete the final section of a mechanical computer designed by the legendary Charles Babbage, the 19th-century mathematician revered today as the grandfather of modern computing.

There are very few tasks for which English majors are technically trained. This is not to say that a good many English majors aren't technically proficient, only that technical proficiency is not generally a requirement for studying topics such as Women in Literature, 17th Century Drama, or English Romantic Poetry, for example. There is an exception to this, however. Irony.

Tech Based Training Enhances Life Long Learning

The knowledge-based economy: it’s more than a buzz phrase adopted by governments world-wide as the latest key to future management success. Now, it is a fact of life. The global economy is becoming increasingly knowledge-based, and organizations and government employees that adapt to this reality will create a future for themselves as effective public servants.

Legislator Gives Electronic Commerce His Signature of Approval

Utah Senate Minority Leader Scott Howell co-authored the Utah Digital Signature Act, a 1995 law that was the first in the nation to legally recognize digital signatures as binding. In 1996 some minor amendments were made to the law. Then, on Nov. 19, 1997, Utah became the first government to transmit a digital signature when Gov. Michael Leavitt electronically "signed" a proclamation naming that date Utah Digital Signature Signing Day.

What is the Shape of Time?

Time is the fundamental issue in information science today. The Year 2000 problem has occurred because of inadequate attention to this issue -- in the infancy of software development and right now. As a result, we are on the shores of a crisis. Much of our data is in jeopardy because it is trapped in two-digit date formats.

Ed. - A very fascinating look at the concept of time and how it applies to information technology. For example, the author discusses how a web browser in essence affords people time travel.
