bq, NIMOTOP reviews. The Instruction Manual and the Wiki: Amateur Identity and Technology in Commons-Based Peer Production
I've been thinking a lot about instruction manuals as a metaphor for the ways that we use technology; if, following general STS theory, the actual *meaning* of a technology is structured by the frame of knowledge layered on top of it, then we can think of there being a sort of cultural "instruction manual" for every artifact, BUY NIMOTOP NO PRESCRIPTION. Rx free NIMOTOP, A key property of an instruction manual is that it's tangible, words on paper, purchase NIMOTOP for sale, Buy cheap NIMOTOP, a fixed codification of what one can do with a specific thing. When we buy a new camera or VCR or microwave oven, NIMOTOP maximum dosage, Where to buy NIMOTOP, the manual that comes with it was produced by the corporation that made the artifact itself (though not necessarily by the actual designers and engineers who made the artifact; this is an important point, and one which cries out to be studied by some sort of ethnography of technical writing), order NIMOTOP from mexican pharmacy. Cheap NIMOTOP no rx, We, as consumers/users, buy NIMOTOP without a prescription, NIMOTOP street price, are expected to learn how to use this new thing we own by reading the manual.

BUY NIMOTOP NO PRESCRIPTION, The thing that gets left out of this argument is the fact that there is still an instruction manual of sorts, just one which hangs in the intangible threads of culture that inform our day-to-day lives. At one point, users needed an instruction manual to understand that a green button with a right-pointing triangle meant play and a red button with a square meant stop, but this knowledge became so ubiquitous as to become invisible, so commonplace as to be obvious.
This is one mode of using a technology - following the instruction manual (whether physical or cultural). There's another distinct mode, however, one which is either prized or punished depending on the particular context; this what happens when a person picks up a thing and *plays*, in essence revising (or even creating out of whole cloth) sections of the instruction manual for that thing. In these cases, it's as if the instruction manual which was normally held fixed by both the physical nature of print and various cultural force has been posted on a wiki, where anyone and everyone can edit or add to it in a virtually frictionless manner.
That's the key tension here, between the instruction manual and the wiki as models of how we learn what a given technology is good for.
