Dear list members,

if you hear or read "informatization", how would you contextualize this 
term?

I am asking this, because I have a rather specific idea of what 
informatization entails (a rather quantitative, technocratic context, 
looking for measurements of technological diffusion and impact on 
labour, e-commerce and other fields...) and I would like to know more 
about other approaches.

Are there any other connotations? Maybe in french literature? (Since the 
term was used in the 1978 presidential report by Nora/Minc: 
L'informatisation de la societe.)

Thanks for your assistence,
Katja
