The Consequences of Information

Institutional Implications of Technological Change

by J. Kallinikos

Jannis Kallinikos analyzes the recent spectacular growth of information and the self-propelling processes through which technological information is increasingly generated out of the reshuffling and recombination of available and interoperable information sources. He argues that information is no longer simply a resource but a pervading element of socio-economic life that is crucially involved in the redefinition of a variety of organizational practices and modes of economic action.

Academics and students in a variety of disciplines, including information studies, information systems, management and organization studies, sociology, social psychology and social policy will find much to interest them in this book.
