Social and Organizational Impact: James M. Nyce

A cultural anthropologist, James Nyce examines how information technologies Nyceemerge, are used by individuals and organizations in the workplace, and reflect developing social trends and attitudes. He has written about the added value of new 3-D visualization technology in the operating room as well as the failure of many current "help" systems to keep pace with increasingly complex computers and automated devices. Most recently a contributor to "High School Media Too: A School Day in the Lives of Fifteen Teenagers"—an important study of how today's teenagers consume media—Nyce also has surveyed cell phone use among college students and discovered intriguing differences between campus cultures in the United States and Europe.
