Chapter 1: The Ever Expanding Domain of Computation

1. On the idea of domains in technologies, see Brian Arthur, The Nature of Technology: What It Is and How It Evolves (New York: Free Press, 2009), 61. A domain forms “a constellation of technologies—a mutually supporting set” (63). Arthur himself sees the digital technologies of computation as forming a domain that is drawing other technologies within it (63).
