  1. Algorithms as Organizational Figuration: The Sociotechnical Arrangements of a Fintech Start-Up.Sine N. Just, Ib T. Gulbrandsen & Sara Dahlman - 2021 - Big Data and Society 8 (1).
    Building on critical approaches that understand algorithms in terms of communication, culture and organization, this paper offers the supplementary conceptualization of algorithms as organizational figuration, defined as material and meaningful sociotechnical arrangements that develop in spatiotemporal processes and are shaped by multiple enactments of affordance–agency relations. We develop this conceptualization through a case study of a Danish fintech start-up that uses machine learning to create opportunities for sustainable pensions investments. By way of ethnographic and literary methodology, we provide an in-depth (...)

  • Following the Fukushima Disaster on (and Against) Wikipedia: A Methodological Note About STS Research and Online Platforms.David Moats - 2019 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 44 (6):938-964.
    Science and technology studies is famous for questioning conceptual and material boundaries by following controversies that cut across them. However, it has recently been argued that in research involving online platforms, there are also more practical boundaries to negotiate that are created by the variable availability, visibility, and structuring of data. In this paper, I highlight a potential tension between our inclination toward following controversies and “following the medium” and suggest that sometimes following controversies might involve going “against platforms” as (...)
