Deep Search collects 13 texts which investigate the social and political dimensions of how we navigate the deep seas of knowledge. What do we win, and what do we lose when we move from an analogue to a digital information order? How is computer readable significance produced, how is meaning involved in machine communication? Where is the potential of having access to such vast amounts of information? What are the dangers of our reliance on search engines and are there any approaches that do not follow the currently dominating paradigm of Google? This volume answers these questions of culture, context and classification regarding information systems that should not be ignored.
