The Production of Service in the Digital City: A Social Informatics Inquiry


The authors discuss eGovernment as a computerization movement, and present a case study of a small project that was part of a modernising government initiative in a UK municipality. The case is analysed by means of an analytic construct, the technological action frame or TAF, that was developed by Iacono and Kling in 1998. This socio-technical approach provides distinctive insights at a number of different organizational levels.
