Series: Making Sense of History. When I first spoke with Helga Nowotny about the key concepts to be addressed at this workshop-Cultures of Technology and the Quest for Innovation-I thought of those situations, described by Tom Hughes, in which people from different functional spheres (. science, industry, and administration) have cooperated in an efficient manner.

Given that innovation privileges novelty and, by implication, the, the first .

Given that innovation privileges novelty and, by implication, the, the first question is how, if at all, these opposing requirements can be reconciled in scientific practice. This article deals with the history of the profession of shorthand typing and more generally, of the transformations which took place in offices from the end of the 19th century onwards, when the acceleration of writing production became a new economic imperative. New technologies can have a double outcome: positive, given that they take on the role of facilitator, or negative, when people tend to make excessive and unconscious use of it or technology repeatedly replaces human beings.

Underlying the current dynamics of technological developments, their divergence or convergence and the abundance of options, promises and risks they contain, is the quest for innovation, the contributors to this volume argue. The seemingly insatiable demand for novelty coincides with the rise of modern science and the onset of modernity in Western societies. Never before has the Baconian dream been so close to becoming reality: wrapped into a globalizing capitalism that seeks ever expanding markets for new products, artifacts and designs and new processes that lead to gains in efficiency, productivity and profit. However, approaching these developments through a wider historical and cultural perspectives, means to raise questions about the plurality of cultures, the interaction between "hardware" and "software" and about the nature of the interfaces where technology meets with economic, social, legal, historical constraints and opportunities. The authors come to the conclusion that inside a seemingly homogenous package and a seemingly universal quest for innovation many differences remain.
