Drawing together these puzzle pieces in the conclusions, I argue that the case of the emergence of NIPT in eastern Austria helps us to see that the mobilization of elements of an imaginary of PT built in the past, when by now "old technologies were new" (Marvin 1990), transformed this imaginary into an infrastructure that facilitated the emergence and diffusion.

This book describes how two newly invented communications technologies - the telephone and the electric light - were publicly envisioned, in specialized engineering trade journals as well as in more popular media, at the end of the nineteenth century. Much of the focus is on the telephone, particularly how it disrupted established social relations (people did not know how to to respond to its use or impact) and how society tried to bring it under a carefully prescribed pattern of proper usage.

In the history of electronic communication, the last quarter of the nineteenth century holds a special place, for it was during this period that the telephone, phonograph, electric light, wireless, and cinema were all invented.

For ury observers, the electric light was a far more Likely mass medium than any point-to-point invention such as the telephone or even wireless, which the nineteenth century regarded as a vastly imperfect point-to-point medium

For ury observers, the electric light was a far more Likely mass medium than any point-to-point invention such as the telephone or even wireless, which the nineteenth century regarded as a vastly imperfect point-to-point medium. Most people made the acquaintance of electric light through its decoration of outdoor spectacles that can- dles and bonfires had once illuminated, and in new spectacles such as the sports event after dark, the nighttime public amusement park, and the electrical exposition

In the history of electronic communication, the last quarter of the nineteenth century holds a special place, for it was during this period that the telephone, phonograph, electric light, wireless, and cinema were all invented. In When old Technologies Were New, Carolyn Marvin explores how two of these new inventions--the telephone and the electric light--were publicly envisioned at the end of the nineteenth century, as seen in specialized engineering journals and popular media. Marvin pays particular attention to the telephone, describing how it disrupted established social relations, unsettling customary ways of dividing the private person and family from the more public setting of the community. On the lighter side, she describes how people spoke louder when calling long distance, and how they worried about catching contagious diseases over the phone. A particularly powerful chapter deals with telephonic precursors of radio broadcasting--the "Telephone Herald" in New York and the "Telefon Hirmondo" of Hungary--and the conflict between the technological development of broadcasting and the attempt to impose a homogenous, ethnocentric variant of Anglo-Saxon culture on the public. While focusing on the way professionals in the electronics field tried to control the new media, Marvin also illuminates the broader social impact, presenting a wide-ranging, informative, and entertaining account of the early years of electronic media.

I've owned this book for 18 months. Every few months, I pick it up again and try to make progress, then I put it down for a more interesting book. So far in the first chapter, the author comes across as whinny.

This seems like an interesting book and I would buy this book for $10, but I'm sorry, $20 for an ebook?

I know it's not Amazon's fault, it's the publishers fault. I guess I'll go see if the library has it.
