ABSTRACT

We are familiar with "information technology" and with “liberation
technology" but perhaps still need to ask ourselves to what extent
information and liberation make natural partners. This primarily
theoretical talk will explore why it is tempting to champion information
and its technologies in the cause of liberation, yet why it may also be
problematic.

SPEAKER BIO

Paul Duguid is an adjunct full professor at the School of Information at
Berkeley. In recent years he has also held visiting positions at Queen
Mary, University of London, Copenhagen Business School, the École
Polytechnique in Paris. In the 1990s, he was a consultant to senior
management at the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC). While there he
was co-author of The Social Life of Information with John Seely Brown, the
director of PARC. Recent work has focused on the multiple conceptions of
information and confusions they can give rise to.
