Techies for Change: Organizing Through Communication in Public Sector Technology Design
With Andrew Schrock, Postdoctoral Fellow, School of Communication, Chapman University. Recent critiques of technological bias have stressed the need for organization and public ownership of technology. Yet, philosophers of technology have found that a technocratic approach can impede collective action, and the politics of technology are rarely addressed by political institutions. In this presentation, Schrock takes an organizational communication perspective to discuss how politically-active techies are responding to this dilemma.
