Sample text

Recent historical sociology of work6 suggests that we can conceive of the labor process as following a distinct pattern of social evolution. An initial “craft” stage of production, in which individual craftspeople carry out all steps in the typical production process, is generally associated with small cities and towns in a largely rural social formation. A second “manufacture” stage, beginning in the late eighteenth century English North, involves the introduction of a detailed division of labor and the dividing up of craft labor processes into distinct jobs, as well as much unskilled repetitive labor and a smaller but strategic group of skilled, directing workers.

This term refers to broad conceptual approaches to human processes, including the kind which domestication involved. The abstractiondependent capabilities or “informating,” which Zuboff identifies with computerization, developed first in productive technology with plant and/or animal breeding. ” The use of instruments and techniques, both physical and social, which enhance the power of elite social groups, first those who created and dominated the new agricultural state structures of 5000 BP, involves a third TAN form, repressive technology.

This progression was employed implicitly in the previous paragraph, as well as in my definition of computing. In their account of information system development in the Scandinavian tradition, Dahlbom and Mathiessen (1993) further problematize as ethnocentric such standard presumptions about information. They do this by inverting the standard hierarchy. In Dahlbom and Mathiessen’s view, the kinds of things which usually get thought of as “data” are anything but isolated, raw, “bits” of something.
