HOW IT CAME TO RULE THE WORLD, 0.5

Technologies are part of a set of practices that frame information and meaning. The spreadsheet, for example, combines the power of lists and tables with other calculative abilities that “in-form” meaning and organize sets of knowledge that run organizations and structure lives.

HOW IT CAME TO RULE THE WORLD, 0.2

The answer to the question of how information technology (IT) emerged is a complex one. The thesis in this project is that modern information technology developed out of the trajectory of US statecraft and its involvement in several political economy regimes which emerged successively and sometimes concurrently in the post-World War II period up and through the turn of the second millennium.
