[Air-L] MA class on orgs and tech - need reading recommendations

Don't forget the granddaddy of all of these books: The Media Is The
Massage from McLuhan (1967). I used the Long Tail and Wikinomics as
sources for my dissertation too, and they are extremely valuable books
because they impact both social science and policy as well as web design
because of the choices one can offer online. Vise & Malseed (2005) have
a great on Google too. I even used both of Bill Gates' books which were
the template for much of what is happening now (1995, 1998). Amazonia is
also a great book too (Marcus, 2004 or 2005?).

I taught an Information, Technology and Organizations a few years back
for undergrads. The syllabi are online. This is the most recent, but
definitely out of date at this time.

>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!
