From the Publisher
"A valuable addition to our growing understanding of the wide-ranging implications of new technologies... Machines That Become Us offers a rich compendium of insights into why we think new machines both 'improve' and 'jumble' our lives."
—Steve Woolgar, Chair of Marketing, Said Business School, University of Oxford
"Machines That Become Us is very much focused on the empirical understanding of information technologies. This kind of work is sorely needed as such technologies become more and more present in everyday life. James Katz is to be commended for putting together a highly successful volume."
—Mark Poster, professor of history, University of California, Irvine
"Machines That Become Us represents a major interdisciplinary work... The process of machines 'becoming us' no longer can be left to cognitive or computer sciences alone, but needs a deep, global view focusing on social practices, including everyday changes in human life; that is what Katz's book does with theoretical passion."
—Patrizia Calefato, professor, Dipartimento di Pratiche linguistiche e analisi di testi, Universita degli studi di Bari
