I have recently finished a master's degree in social anthropology, thesis titled: The impact of design ethnography and Wordpress | Client - web designer relationships in the nonprofit sector. I simply wanted to let anyone who may be interested know the text is now online, and to please provide any feedback or comments you feel necessary!
The increasing rate of technological innovation and integration into
the daily lives of many online users has spurred both the
reconceptualization of the digital divide, and the promotion of
user-centered research methods; that emphasize the significance of
variability in technology acquisition. No longer is technology to be
considered an external tool, where success depends on basic
functionality, but an integrated player affected by the social relations
and environment in which it resides. Through Niklas Luhmann’s systems
theory in combination with actor-network theory, this study aims to
look first at the systems in which nonprofits and web designers
separately operate; how their processes are altered with the
introduction of design ethnography and Wordpress; and finally which
human and nonhuman actors may be utilized in the creation of websites
for nonprofits who desire technological self-sufficiency.
