Reviews & Statements

"This is a collection that every information scientist, as well as those from other disciplines, should make time to read. The contributions highlight the fact that an increasing number of computer science and ICT-related disciplines are collaborating with behavioral and social sciences."

– Karin McGuirk, University of South Africa Online Information Review, Vol. 36. No. 2, 2012

Overall the book would fit to a course on technology and society. It would also be a good grounding text for those of use thinking to conduct research in this area.

Darek is now mainly occupied with research and teaching, and he is also the Director of Executive Education at the Stockholm University School of business. His research addresses two main frontiers: the structure and dynamics of information-based organizations and their operations, and the normative conditions inherent in the design, development and change of any human affairs.
