This concluding chapter points out how the empirical studies presented in this book are all concerned with the sites of interaction between social and technological processes. The focuses of these studies include how social processes promote the use of ICTs, how social processes influence procedural and institutional governance simultaneously emerging with the growth of Internet use, and how social processes were involved in the early design of various technological systems. By combining the results derived from the previous chapters, this chapter summarizes the important points and plots them in a wider framework to arrive at how a research agenda regarding social and technical mediation could be further developed.

Keywords:   social process, technological process, relationship, governance, ICT, design, mediation
