The Reinvention of Social Capital for Socio-Technical Systems

Jeremy Pitt , Andrzej Nowak


The author asserts that information and communications technologies should be used to re-invent new forms of social capital in the process of developing 21st century socio-technical systems, at a time when the erosion of public trust in institutions worldwide is undermining the ability of people to solve collective action problems. He adds that computational justice and collective awareness could serve as guiding principles that could provide the foundation for these forms of social capital.
