|"OOO Yeah?" will be reading and discussing object-oriented ontology, or OOO for short.

other relevant topics and writings as they emerge. One of the goals will
be to understand actor-network theory in its various practical
applications, and one of this groups projects will be to identify a
potential case-study that might be best accomplished by deploying ANT
