Example text

The utility of a mobile computer is dependent on the dynamic relationship between what its physical, systemic and interfacial functionalities afford and the task or activity which it is mediating. What it affords is inherent in a combination of the ‘application’ component of the model and the motive which dictates the fundamental pattern of movement of the individual using the application to perform or support an activity. The mobility of objects—natural or artificial, physical or non-physical, tangible or intangible—is largely dependent on human mobility (cf.

191), correlates strongly with mobility. Thus, drawing from this view and Beck’s argument that ‘‘capital, culture, technology and politics merrily come together to roam beyond the regulatory power of the national state’’ (1999, p. ’’ However, Urry, based on his analysis of mobility, globalization and inter-regional social networks, re-defines it as a global civil society. The discussions in this section denote three main ideas. Firstly, the evolution of society correlates strongly with increasing levels of mobility across spatial, temporal and contextual boundaries.

The upshot is that the study of computer-based information systems may be limited if placed only in the context of the rationality and economics of the hereand-now. A more holistic study requires its placement in a wider historical context to achieve an adequate understanding of their social and cultural ramifications. This context should, for example, consider the evolution of writing (Ong 1982), the evolution of personality (Leont’ev 1978), digital innovation (Tilson et al. 2010a), historical perception (Wartofsky 1979), the transition from modernism to postmodernism (Lyotard 1984), and interactive control (Beniger 1986).
