Francois said in re Lucy Suchman's observations about CAD systems:

<quote>This leads me to ask if the satisfactory design of the tools
translates into the creation of a point through which accumulated
experience is brought to bear upon a set of materials</quote>

I find what I take to be Suchman's source, Pickering's Mangle of
Practice about the concept of "material agency," to be about just this point.
