Given recent discussion of what social scientists need from computing (and is it plain-text scripting?), sharing this recent survey of cultural heritage visualization systems (16p). Section 3.4 (Granularity and Interactivity) will be especially interesting; the authors avoid flattening this idea to a 'file system'.

Thanks for the heads up, it's open access I just need to strip the link

very interesting! this looks like a good source of ideas for what kinds of views and interactions are useful in software - even outside social science.

Inverting the discussion. A curator at a computer history museum once sent me this paper as being one of the most significant influences on his work: On the discrepancy between objects and things: An ecological approach. Basically how things become objects and gain the status of representation in a "cultural heritage visualization system". This is especially relevant to the history of computing because so many "things" like networked software are not physical objects. And neither is cultural heritage, although it's often embodied by physical objects.
