Abstract: Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre. Trevor Pinch is Professor of Science and Technology Studies and Professor of Sociology at Cornell University. Pinch has a degree in Physics from the Imperial College London and a PhD in Sociology from the University of Bath. He taught sociology at the University of York before moving to the USA. Together with Wiebe Bijker, he started the movement known as Social Construction of Technology (SCOT) within the sociology of science. He is the coeditor of How Users Matter: The Co-Construction of Users and Technology (MIT Press, 2003) and the coauthor of Analog Days: The Invention and Impact of the Moog Synthesizer and other books. He is a significant contributor to the study of Sound culture, and his books include a major study of Robert Moog. This talk addresses the topic of digital music through a two year ethnographic study of the users of the website ACIDplanet.com.
