A Genealogy of Software Applications
This chapter outlines a broad genealogy of two areas within software culture: Digital Non-Linear Editing (DNLE) and Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software. Emerging from distinct institutional environments, their respective historical developments and the implications these have generated within their professional domains provide a broader context for the software at the centre of this educational research project (see Chaps. 3 and 4). Each of these histories demonstrate how decisive the institutional and industrial contexts of their creation were in inscribing the affordances, interfaces and conceptual frameworks coded into these software.
