Lee Sproull and Sara Kiesler examine change with an unusually discerning eye and a critical intelligence that tolerates ambiguity and conditions its claims.... In their balanced and insightful analysis, the authors urge us to understand that technologies may deliberately be used to reinforce a clear chain of command, to structure and even block pathways of information exchange, to suppress 'extracurricular' use of the system, and to improve security through surveillance.... Sproull and Kiesler raise crucial questions about our technical and particularly our human strategies as a producing society.
