ie thread --> top ten books to own
I really learned a lot from reading Langdon Winner's _The Whale and
the Reactor: A Search for Limits in an Age of High Technology_ (Univ
of Chicago Press, 1986). He places the design and use of technologies
within a wide range of contexts and helped me think about the
non-technological forces that help determine, for example, how we
design an interface or help system. Lots of good connections
