In reaction to this situation I found myself increasingly preoccuped with locations and boundaries, specifically with efforts to identify them, understand them and ultimately re-draw them. The first are those closest to home, among the various networks that make up the multinational corporation in which I worked. Within the company's United States operations alone there exist multiple social worlds differentiated by geographical, organizational and professional locations. My own position within the corporation was defined in relation to these worlds and by an additional set of working relationships which was perhaps the most important. That was a small network of allies including anthropologists, computer scientists, engineers, and product designers distributed among several sites within the U.S. and England. What bound us together were a series of dissatisfactions regarding the current regime within which we are asked to work, and a set of partial but related visions for how things might be different.
