Categories ofTechnology and Social Action


This is a draft of a paper that we (Ann Light & I) will be presenting at the DIAC 2008 conference in Berkeley in June.

It aims to classify types of technology in social action in terms of what the technology is doing (the function), not the form (blogs, wikis etc.).

We hope you find it useful.

We would welcome feedback on the model we are proposing.
