(p.116) Chapter 5 IT, Again: How to Build an Ethical Virtual Institution

“IT, Again” is experimenting with points and issues, like the economy, ethics, and the institution of the university, in the sense Samuel Weber has given to the term “experimenting”, where the present participle involves movement and is never conclusive or contained. Experimenting with the institution of the university can be undertaken in the current politico-economic climate. Weber's analysis of the process of institutionalization is expounded in a number of books and articles, including recently reprinted and expanded version of Institution and Interpretation. This version has become absorbed into the mainstream of literary and cultural theory. Knowledge and information is being produced today like cars and steel produced a hundred years ago, those who know how to produce knowledge and information better than others reap the rewards. In our modern time, IT is playing a vital part in the development of what has come to be known as the “knowledge economy.”
