Visioning Technologies brings together a collection of texts from leading theorists to examine how architecture has been, and is, reframed and restructured by the visual and theoretical frameworks introduced by different ‘technologies of sight’ – understood to include orthographic projection, perspective drawing, telescopic devices, photography, film and computer visualization, amongst others. Each chapter deals with its own area and historical period of expertise, organized sequentially to mark out and analyse the historical evolution of how architecture has been transformed by technologically induced shifts in human perception from the 15th century until today. This book underlines the way in which architectural forms and design processes have developed historically in conjunction with the systems of sight we manufacture technologically and suggests this continues today. Paradoxically, it is premised on the argument that these technological systems tend, in their initial formulations, to obtain ever greater realism in our visualizations of the physical world.

Location Technologies in International Context offers the first international account of location technologies (in an expanded sense) and brings together a range of contributions on these technologies and their various cultures of use within the Global South. This collection asks: How, within the Global South, do location technologies differ across national markets, geo-linguistic communities and cultural contexts? What are the contrasting or shared meanings and practices associated with location technologies? And what innovative practices and new (or reinvigorated) theory may emerge from attention to the Global South? In exploring these questions, the collection contributes to our understanding of social, cultural, gendered and political relations on a global and local scale. Location Technologies in International Context is ideal for a range of disciplines, including cultural, communication and media studies; anthropology, sociology and geography; new media, Internet and mobile studies; and informatics and development studies.

This book will assist the reader in identifying key technologies and their applicability to corporate value chain activities. White demonstrates how product development, manufacturing, and sales activities can be evaluated for possible improvement. He also shows how the goals of reducing cost, blocking competition, restructuring one's industry, and improving the idea flow among staff members can be achieved through technological innovations.

“A most informative account of a culture whose secular concerns continue to collide with their supernatural flip-side.”—Voice Literary Supplement In this dazzling book, writer and cyber guru Erik Davis demonstrates how religious imagination, magical dreams and millennialist fervor have always permeated the story of technology. Through shamanism to Gnosticism, voodoo to alchemy, Buddhism to evangelism, TechGnosis peels away the rational shell of infotech to reveal the utopian dreams, alien obsessions and apocalyptic visions that populate the ongoing digital revolution. Erik Davis' work has appeared in Wired, The Village Voice and Gnosis, and he has lectured internationally on technoculture and new forms of religion. He is a fifth-generation Californian who currently lives in San Francisco.

The increasing challenges in managing and operating transportation systems have behooves transportation agencies to consider innovative alternative technology solutions. to improv transportation system performance. The goal of this project is to conduct a comprehensiv survey and assessment of the emerging and promising technology that are likely to impact the transportation performance in the NYMTC region. A key purpose of this study is to develop document which serves as a 'one-stop shop' for emerging technology that may be considere for implementation by the different transportation agencies in the NYMTC region. The study was divided into the following 6 tasks: Task 1: Comprehensive Literature Review; Task 2: Initial List of Emerging Technologies; Task 3: Screening of Emerging Technologies; Task 4: Short list of Emerging Technologies; Task 5: Assesment of Short-Listed Technologies; Task 6: Conference and Final Report. The findings from this project were submitted as a final report to NYMTC.

Over the past century, technology advances have had major impacts on mining practices and the nature of the mine and quarry sites in the United States. The evolution of current technologies, as well as the introduction of innovations, will continue and perhaps accelerate in the new century. Several industry objectives will drive future technology change, including lowering production costs, enhancing the productivity of workers and equipment, opening up new reserves and extending the life of existing ore bodies. Continuing to meet regulatory and stakeholder requirements in areas such as health and safety, environmental impacts, and land use. Between March and July 2000, the RAND Science and Technology Policy Institute conducted a series of in-depth, confidential discussions with key members of the mining community to elicit a wide range of views on technology trends in all sectors of the U.S. mining and quarrying industry. The discussions included 58 organizations engaged in coal, metals, aggregates, and industrial minerals production, as well as technology providers and research institutions. This report brings to light those technologies viewed by industry leaders as critical to the success of the industry currently, and critical technologies likely to be implemented between now and 2020.
