Despite extraordinary advances in digital and communication technology over recent years, we know very little about the way these complex systems affect everyday work and interaction. This book seeks to explore these issues through a series of video-based field studies looking at the introduction of basic information systems in general medical practice, news production, the control room of London Underground and computer aided design in architectural practice, focusing on social interaction and the way video-based field studies can inform the design, development and implementation of new technology. Contents 1. Technology and social action: computers and situated conduct 2. Documents and professional practice: 'bad` organisational reasons for 'good' clinical records 3. Animating texts: the collaborative production of news stories 4. Team work: collaboration and control in London Underground line control rooms 5. The collaborative production of computer commands 6.
