Hi all,
Hope you all are well! I am looking for some reading recommendations  
for a class I'm teaching this spring. It is an MA-level course in a  
technology-focused department with two tracks - one focused on web  
design and the other on social science and policy.  The course is  
called "Organizations and Technology" and the description is quite  
broad. I am looking to revamp the class, most likely with a focus on  
industry developments and the ways in which various orgs are  
incorporating/capitalizing on "web 2.0" features.

Any suggestions re: readings? Some I am already evaluating: Nicholas  
Carr's "Does IT Matter," "Information Rules" (Shapiro and Varian),  
"Long Tail" (Anderson), and "Wikinomics" (Tapscott and Williams).  
Article suggestions are welcome as well.

Thanks much in advance!
