Technology alters how we understand the world
“The particular forms that information takes – graphical and lexical expressions, columns of numbers, or records in a relational database – shape the questions that can be easily asked of it, the kinds of manipulations and analyses it supports, and how it can be used to understand the world.” - Dourish, P. & Mazmanian, M., 2011. Media as Material: Information Representations as Material Foundations for Organizational Practice. In Third International Symposium on Process Organization Studies. Third International Symposium on Process Organization Studies. p. 24.
