||My major is Information Sociology, the empirical analysis of the mutual construction between human activity and information technology based on Actor Network Theory and other sociology of science and technology theories. My main interest lies in the socio-technical network among the actors, as I aim to understand information systems, communities of practice, and learning environments.
