Métatechnologies et délégation : pour un design orienté-société dans l'ère du Web 2.0

Abstract : In this dissertation, we use the concept of delegation to critically examine the man-machine relationship under the light of questions of power and control. Certain new technologies, like those programs we have called “metatechnologies”, which filter, structure, organize and fusion information and communication streams, perform – in an automatic fashion – tasks that are quite similar to those of mass-media. Through analyzing a series of examples, we show in which sense these software tools mix social and technical theories in order to take on functions that are increasingly cultural in nature. From this observation, we argue that the hybridization of culture and technology is forcing us to reconsider our methods in software development in order to open up to a critical technical practice.
