Johns Hopkins Studies in Computing and Culture is a new series that publishes on the relationships among digital technology, political economies, and sociocultural systems. Series editors Jeffrey R.

His research focuses on the social, cultural, and institutional history of computing/software, and his most recent book is Making IT Work: A History of the Computer Services Industry (MIT Press, 2017).

Gerardo Con Diaz is Associate Professor of Science and Technology Studies at the University of California, Davis. His research investigates the relationships among information technology, law, and business.
