Is 'designing' cyberinfrastructure -or even, definining it- possible?

  • Peter A. Freeman

Abstract

In the technical world, ‘design’ implies having a set of specifications to which the resulting design responds. This, in turn, implies that you know what it is that you are designing — i.e. that you can describe or define it. The current state of understanding of cyberinfrastructure calls into question both of these assertions. This brief paper will suggest some important considerations.
