    One thought on “Questioning Technology”

    1. An excellent introduction to the topic, as well as being a thoroughly convincing argument in its own right. The author had a slight tendency toward sociologist jargonspeak, but I also had the impression it was less of a problem here than with some of his colleagues. It made me want to learn more about the issue, which is also good.

    2. reading it before I go to a conference in Uppsala, where I will listen to Andrew Feenberg in person and hopefully get a chance to ask him questions One of the best authors for those interested in politics of technology.
