1. Mueller, Tom., Mijatovic, Blazan., Hamilton, Nathan., Cetin, Haluk., Lee, Brian. and Karathanasis, A.. "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>. 2019-08-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p235510_index.html>
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.

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.

3. Kang, Hyunjin. "You as a Commodity of Google: Examining Audience Commodification of Google" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Marriott, Chicago, IL, May 20, 2009 Online <PDF>. 2019-08-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p301019_index.html>

Abstract: This paper examines the process of audience commodification of Google, the most popular search engine in the U.S. The author reviews literature related to audience commodification in traditional media. Based on those theoretical foundations, the author analyzes the mechanisms of audience commodification via Google and dissects the components of its audiences as its commodities.
In the political economy perspective, this paper argues that Google’s huge surplus value from advertising is resulted from extensive commodification of its users. Unique features of Google as an advertisement venue intensify commodifications of its users. The author argues that the simplified valorization process of Google’s advertising methods enables Google to earn significant more surplus values than those of traditional media do. Also, Google’s personalized advertising strategies, a precise measurement of advertising cost, which is based on users’ behaviors represented as ‘a number of clicks,’ and the unclear distinction between advertisements and serviced contents commodify its users’ online activities. Lastly, the author asserts that Google commodify the aggregated consciousnesses of its users because Google sells keywords that advertisers want to expose their advertisements along with search outputs of those, which are literally priced in accordance with their popularities.

Examining How the News Industry Framed Google in an Era of News Aggregation" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication, Renaissance Hotel, Washington DC, Aug 08, 2013 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2019-08-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p670607_index.html>

Abstract: As online news aggregators outperform most traditional media sites, some news executives accuse Google News of stealing their content, even as they rely on Google for exposure. This quantitative content analysis examines how the news industry, during the 2008–2010 financial shock for U.S. newspapers, covered its delicate relationship with Google. While Google was often portrayed as the enemy, most coverage suggested that newspapers should work with Google, indicating the challenge in assessing Google’s role in an era of news aggregation.
