I have found an online version of the Stars paper at
Oddly enough, that page is titled "My wonderful paper in IEEE Format". Go
A related paper was found at:
google "socio-technical framework" and you will find tons of good stuff.
"We now turn to the socio-technical nature of information infrastructures.
As outlined in chapters 3 and 4 above, the development of an information
infrastructure needs to be recognised as an ongoing socio-technical
negotiation. An analysis of it accordingly presumes a suitable vehicle. This
chapter contains a presentation of one such vehicle, namely actor-network
theory. It is intended to pave the road for describing and analysing how
issues of flexibility and standardisation outlined in chapters 4 and 5
unfold in relation to information infrastructure. This chapter accordingly
functions as a stepping stone for the chapters than follow. "
I could go on forever with such a search, but I'll leave the rest as an
exercise for the reader ;o)
Nice post, John.
