Abstract: Artifacts in technical systems have received attention as interpretative subjects in Pinch and Bijker’s (1987) Social Construction of Technology, as actors in Latour’s (2005) Actor Network Theory, and as intersections of political discourse as in Winner’s (1988) analysis of Robert Moses’ bridges. As Klein and Kleinman (2002) note, these approaches acknowledge structural influences but ground their arguments in examples of diverse acts of agency, lessening attention to the structural influences within which social actions are embedded. In institutional settings Rosen (1993), Strasser (1989), Klein and Kleinman (2002) argue advertisers shape the market by shaping how artifacts are understood. Carroll and Hannan’s (2004) focus on ‘forms’ suggests an artifact’s class creates the category for any series of like artifacts to sit within (e.g. iPhone the artifact, smartphone the form). Here artifacts are sub-liminal to the structural scaffold institutions created to house the artifact. Some approaches, however, include the buttressing of material conventions with their social counterparts. Giddens’ (1984) structuration theory, Law’s (1987) work on heterogeneous engineering, and Gillespie’s (2010) focus on discursive flexibility of digital platforms reconstitute attention to artifact, institution, and agency. If artifacts are revisualized as products we can access institutional frames created to economically and culturally position an artifact in social and material networks while acknowledging the flexibility of agency at the intersection of product and interpretation. I examine the Google Car as a product that interacts with social and material structures and its role as a material dimension of institutional interaction with large technical systems.

"Dissemination of Land Use Planning Information from Soil Surveys with Google Maps and Google Earth" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the SOIL AND WATER CONSERVATION SOCIETY, TBA, Tucson, Arizona, Jul 26, 2008 <Not Available>. 2019-06-16 <>
Publication Type: Oral Presentation
Abstract: Extensive land use planning information is available from soil surveys for most of the United States. Great advances in mapping and internet technologies have made this information much easier to obtain, however it is not used for most planning decisions. We propose a method for making land use data available in Google Earth and Google Map. This paper describes various procedures we have used to accomplish this for some locations in Kentucky.
