The Information Systems and Innovation Group will host its eighth annual
Social Study of ICT (SSIT8) workshop on 25 April 2008.

Information growth is a distinctive phenomenon of the late 20th and
early 21st century. Large varieties of information are currently
produced and circulated, in a rapidly increasing scale, across the
various institutional domains of contemporary societies. Technical and
administrative innovations have been expanding the interoperable
platforms that make possible the development and diffusion of
information within and across systems and organizations. At the same
time, a range of devices from desktop computing to cell phones and
digital cameras have been spreading across the population, making
individuals and social groups important producers and consumers of
information. A pivotal development has been the emergence, expansion and
deepening involvement of the internet in social and economic life.
Speakers include:
Albert Borgmann, University of Montana
Geoffrey Bowker, University of California, Santa Clara
John Gantz, IDC - International Data Corporation
Jannis Kallinikos, London School of Economics
