http://schema.org/description

  • ""In this book, Rich Ling explores the process by which the mobile phone has become embedded in society, comparing it to earlier technologies that changed the character of our social interaction and, along the way, became taken for granted. By examining the similarities and synergies between the mobile phone and the clock and the automobile, Ling sheds a more general light on how technical systems become embedded in society and how they support social interaction within the closest sphere of friends and family".-- Jaquette."
