Abstract

The article summarises and reviews a new book on the consequences of information growth. It underlines the importance of studying technological change by focusing on information growth dynamics rather than individual and collective agents. It also shows that new organisational arrangements falling under the network umbrella should be conceptualised as spatio-temporal instantiations of institutional arrangements reflecting the quest for cross-boundary transactions involving mostly the exchange, transfer and generation of messages and information.
