Junkware by Thierry Bardini( )

Are we made of junk? Thierry Bardini believes we are. Examining an array of cybernetic structures from genetic codes to communication networks, he explores the idea that most of culture and nature, including humans, is composed primarily of useless, but always potentially recyclable, material otherwise known as "junk." Bardini unravels the presence of junk at the interface between science fictions and fictions of science, showing that molecular biology and popular culture since the early 1960s belong to the same culture-cyberculture-which is essentially a culture of junk. He draws on a wide variety of sources, including the writings of Philip K. Dick and William S. Burroughs, interviews with scientists as well as "crackpots," and work in genetics, cybernetics, and physics to support his contention that junk DNA represents a blind spot in our understanding of life. At the same time, Junkware examines the cultural history that led to the encoding and decoding of life itself and the contemporary turning of these codes into a commodity. But he also contends that, beyond good and evil, the essential "junkiness" of this new subject is both the symptom and the potential cure
Bootstrapping : Douglas Engelbart, coevolution, and the origins of personal computing by Thierry Bardini( Book )

8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Combining technological, social, and historical perspectives, Bootstrapping traces the genesis of personal computing through a close study of the pathbreaking work of one researcher, Douglas Engelbart. In his lab at the Stanford Research Institute in the 1960s, Engelbart, along with a small team of researchers, developed some of the cornerstones of personal computing as we know it - including the mouse, the windowed user interface, and hypertext. Since that time, all these technologies have become so commonplace as to be taken for granted, but the assumptions and motivations behind their invention are not. Thierry Bardini analyzes Engelbart's singular achievement through a detailed history of his vision for a human-computer interface in the context of the U.S. computer research community during the 1960s and 1970s." "The book offers a careful narrative of the growth and decline of Engelbart's laboratory at SRI, and it examines the subsequent translation of Engelbart's vision. It shows that Engelbart's ultimate goal of coevolution came to be translated in the less challenging terms of technological progress and human adaptation to supposedly user-friendly technologies." "At a time when the massive diffusion of the World Wide Web has spawned myriad pronouncements on our social and technological future, Bootstrapping recalls the early experiments and original ideals that led to today's "information revolution.""--Jacket

Modèle technique et modernisation : le cas du lait de brebis dans le rayon de Roquefort, 1950-1985 by Thierry Bardini( Book )

4 editions published in 1991 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

À partir de l'étude de cas du développement de la production ovine laitière dans le rayon de roquefort de 1950 à 1985, cette thèse envisage le problème du changement technique dans les systèmes de production agricole. La première partie est consacrée à la présentation du cadre théorique et méthodologique autour des concepts centraux de modèle technique et de controverse. Le concept de modelé technique permet de dégager un mouvement d'ensemble définissant une cohérence technico-sociale des dynamiques d'innovation classiquement traitées isolement. Le concept de controverse, développé dans le cadre de la théorie de la traduction, permet de suivre la genèse et la transformation du modelé technique. La seconde partie est consacrée à l'interprétation du cas Roquefort à l'aide de l'outil introduit et développé dans la première partie. Cette partie empirique mobilise deux enquêtes pour analyser le modelé technique roquefort et la controverse essentielle autour de la technique d'insémination artificielle. Les efforts d'amélioration génétique de la brebis Lacaune apparaissent ainsi centraux pour la modernisation de la production envisagée dans une perspective technique et sociale. L'interprétation proposée permet de saisir l'importance des éleveurs sélectionneurs comme porte-parole et élite dirigeante du développement de la production. En conclusion, l'auteur propose une nouvelle voie d'analyse de la crise de surproduction qui affecte la production de lait de brebis depuis 1976 et insiste sur l'intérêt méthodologique de sa construction théorique en terme de modelé technique entre traduction et tradition
