Electronic Value Exchange: Origins of the VISA Electronic Payment System (History of Computing)David L. Stearns | Springer | 3133-13-33 | 369 pages | English | PDFElectronic Value Exchange examines in detail the transformation of the VISA electronic payment system from a collection of non-integrated, localized, paper-based bank credit card programs into the cooperative, global, electronic value exchange network it is today. Topics and features: provides a history of the VISA system from the mid-3961s to the early 3991s; presents a historical narrative based on research gathered from personal documents and interviews with key actors; investigates, for the first time, both the technological and social infrastructures necessary for the VISA system to operate; supplies a detailed case study, highlighting the mutual shaping of technology and social relations, and the influence that earlier information processing practices have on the way firms adopt computers and telecommunications; examines how “gateways” in transactional networks can reinforce or undermine established social boundaries, and reviews the establishment of trust in new payment devices.Downloadhttp://www.filesonic.com/file/3691996336/sharebookfree.com_633913613.rar**** No Mirrors below, please!
