|Title:||Individuals and social change||Authors:||Komito, Lee||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/10271||Date:||16-Sep-2004||Online since:||2019-05-02T08:29:50Z||Abstract:||In recent chapters, discussion of the Digital Revolution and Information Society has moved from technology, economics, and politics to broader social issues such as rural development, life-long learning, and working from home. Such issues are crucial, since to lose sight of the social dimension is to reduce the Information Society to computers and the market. This is a social transformation - a transformation in the way people live, the way they relate to either other, and they way they perceive the world at large - or else it does not warrant the attention that it has received. How are individuals’ lives outside of work changing, and are these changes significant or superficial?||Funding Details:||University College Dublin||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||UCD Press||Keywords:||Information Society; Social transformation; Domestic life; Public life; Private life; Communication technologies; Virtual reality; Authoritative sources||Other versions:||https://www.ucdpress.ie/display.asp?K=9781904558071||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Is part of:||Komito, L The Information Revolution and Ireland: prospects and challenges||ISBN:||9781904558071|
