GENDER & COMPUTING: The history of things that didn’t take place
ÃƒËœystein SÃƒÂ¸rensen, historian, has written a book about ‘things that didn’t take place’. I haven’t read it, but understand it as a sort of ‘counter-history’, about possibilities and trajectories that wasn’t followed. Sounds interesting. And it is not very far from SCOT’s focus on ‘failures’ in technological development.
well SCOT doesn’t necessarily focus on failures… that is just an easy analysis. but i do thik this is something that is worth considering. if nothing else then as a subjected discourse.
