Pressestimmen"Meaning in Technology is a sensitive, sensible critique of outdated and ahistorical notions about technology as a suprahuman force transcending individual experiences and feelings." - Howard P. Segal, Nature; "Writing in a conversational style, Paley refreshingly advocates the personal experience of technology as an essential part of the larger public meaning....With many examples, Paley makes a convincing case for technology that values people as well as their environment." - Laverna Saunders, Library Journal"
