Comments on 'An organizational theory of information' by A.W. Holt and F. Cardone

Abstract

This paper is rather tough reading. Like FRISCO Chapter 4, it is dense, abstract and somewhat formal. The reader is advised to populate its abstractions with concrete instances. It would also be interesting to visit the corpus of raw material that inspired this approach to information systems. The authors have an abundance of varied practical experience to draw upon. One can often appreciate a theory better when its roots are visible, at least this guides one’s choice of concrete illustrations.
