Ethics of seamless infrastructures: resources and future directions
2007 (English)In: International Review of Information Ethics, ISSN 1614-1687, Vol. 8, no 8, 20-27 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The argument of this paper is that the rhetoric of “seamlessness” and its embodiment within certain information infrastructures may be ethically problematic due to the way it articulates a particular kind of passivity and lack of engagement between people and their actions and between people and their social and material environment. The paper describes “seamlessness” as a socio-technical value, details its use in context, and outlines three areas of scholarship that can provide necessary perspectives and methods for research on “seamlessness” and other tropes of ubiquitous computing.
