some other suggestions:

The critical race and cyberculture literature is where i regularly draw my
arguments of 'tech as ideologically neutral' from, since those researchers
argue against precisely that perspective.  Most of the work is in edited
collections and journal special issues:

   - Tu, Nelson, and Hines  "Technicolor"
   - Alondra Nelson's "AfroFuturism" special issue in Social Work
   - Kolko, Nakamura, Rodman "Race in Cyberspace"
   - Silver and Massanari's "Critical Cyberculture Studies"
   - de la Pena and Vaidhyanathan's "Rewiring the "Nation": The Place of
   Technology in American Studies" special issue
   - in American Quarterly
   - Nakamura and Chow-White "Race after the Internet"

for a specifically STS perspective

   - Pacey (as mentioned earlier)
   - Marvin (as mentioned earlier)
   - Michael Adas "Dominance by Design"
   - Joel Dinerstein "Swinging the Vine"
   - David Nye "American Technological Sublime"


James Carey's "Communication as Culture"

Hope this helps...
