Editorial Reviews

Review

"Although approximately one million Americans operated ham radios in the course of the 20th century, very little has been written about this thriving technical culture in our midst. Kristen Haring offers a deeply sympathetic history of this under-appreciated technical community and their role in contributing to American advances in science and technology, especially the electronics industry. In the process she reveals how technical tinkering has defined manhood in the United States and has powerfully constituted 'technical identities' with often utopian, even, at times, revolutionary, notions about the social uses of technology."--Susan Douglas, Catherine Neafie Kellogg Professor of Communication Studies, University of Michigan, and author of *Listening In: Radio and the American Imagination*



" Digitizing the News shows how dramatic innovations can unfold from the coevolution of social and technical choices made over several decades. Putting the news online is changing the production, editing, and consumption of news in ways that shape content in significant ways. How different enterprises have made these choices around the Internet and the news has created a variety of paths to the future of electronic news media. Students in the social sciences and humanities, particularly within communication and journalism, will value this book, which illustrates how research on new media can inform, and be informed by, social studies of science and technology." William H. Dutton, Director, Oxford Internet Institute



' Digitizing the News is a rich, nuanced account of the divergent ways that established print media reacted to new digital technologies. Reluctant to relinquish their gatekeeping role and the dominant logic of 'we publish, consumers read,' newspapers were slow to accommodate non-print forms of information delivery. Boczkowski shows how these decisions were shaped by both the politics of newsrooms and differing conceptions of the audience. This lively book deserves attention from students of technology and the media.' Walter W. Powell, Stanford University

"In Digitizing the News, Pablo Boczkowski's keen eye for organizational detail, insistence on the importance of history, and rich appreciation for scholarly ideas combine to produce an astute investigation of the way newspapers have confronted the challenge of the World Wide Web."

From the Inside Flap

"*Digitizing the News* shows how dramatic innovations can unfold from the co-evolution of social and technical choices made over several decades. Putting the news online is changing the production, editing and consumption of news in ways that shape content in significant ways. How different enterprises have made these choices around the Internet and the news has created a variety of paths to the future of electronic news media.

Dutton, Director, Oxford Internet Institute, University of Oxford

"This book is a real gem. It has the makings of a classic, and there is not much else out there like it. I would say that it is a major contribution to the new field of 'infrastructure studies.' As such, it will be read by scholars interested in the history of communication, information science, journalism, and communication theory. It's also a good read: Boczkowski tells his story so that the introduction of the digital newspaper becomes an integral part of the growth of the Internet and its associated publics. It will doubtless have a large impact on the social study of technology and its associated communication processes." --Susan Leigh Star, Professor of Communication , University of California, San Diego, and co-author, *Sorting Things Out: Classification and Its Consequences*

This lively book deserves attention from students of technology and the media." --Walter W. Powell, Stanford University

"Finally, a study that moves beyond the early, deterministic hype about the revolutionary effects of the Internet and instead adopts a more evolutionary, actor-based approach to explore how established media adopt and respond to new communications technologies. *Digitizing the News* is a very important study of the newsroom and news routines in transition, and a smart, nuanced account of the often contradictory nature of technological change within organizations and, indeed, within society at large." --Susan J. Douglas, The University of Michigan --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
