To code or not to code? The Informatics department brings together a variety of Informatics faculty to discuss the role and application of information and computer technologies (ICTs) in our lives. But do scholars of ICTs need to know how to code? Research in software engineering has no doubt as to the significance of computational code and its capacities. However, little is said about whether source code is an appropriate organizing principle for social arrangements. Meanwhile, social theorists have long been considering the impacts of computerization on society with a range of claims as to the importance of the "digital." All begging the question: Does code matter?
