1Tredinnick, L.: Each one of us was several : networks, rhizomes and Web organisms.
In: Knowledge organization. 40(2013) no.6, S.414-421.
Abstract: This paper develops a conceptual analysis of hypertext and the World Wide Web by exploring the contrasting metaphors of the network and the rhizome. The idea of the network has influenced the conceptual thinking about both the web, and its wider socio-cultural influence. The paper develops an alternative description of the structure of hypertext and the web in terms of interrupted and dissipated energy flows. It concludes that the web should be considered not as a particular set of protocols and technological standards, nor as an interlinked set of technologically mediated services, but as a dynamic reorganisation of the socio-cultural system itself that at its inception has become associated with particular forms of technology, but which has no determinate boundaries, and which should properly be constituted in the spaces between technologies, and the spaces between persons.

2Tredinnick, L.: Complexity theory and the web.
In: Journal of documentation. 65(2009) no.5, S.797-816.
Abstract: Purpose - This paper aims to explore the influence of complexity theory on the development of the web. It seeks to critique the role of complexity theory as a governing metaphor in the discourse of the web, and to examine whether complexity theory is able to provide an adequate description of the web, and its relationship to society and knowledge. Design/methodology/approach - The paper is a critial review. Findings - The paper establishes the influence of complexity in the discourse of the web and questions the adequacy of complexity theory to provide a description of the web and its relationship to cognition and society. Originality/value - This paper explores the influence of a single concept (complexity theory) on the discourse and development of the web.
3Tredinnick, L.: Post-structuralism, hypertext, and the World Wide Web.
In: Aslib proceedings. 59(2007) no.2, S.169-186.
Abstract: Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to explore the application of post-structuralist theory to understanding hypertext and the World Wide Web, and the challenge posed by digital information technology to the practices of the information profession. Design/methodology/approach - The method adopted is that of a critical study. Findings - The paper argues for the importance of post-structuralism for an understanding of the implications of digital information for the information management profession. Originality/value - Focuses on an epistemological gap between the traditional practices of the information profession, and the structure of the World Wide Web.

4Tredinnick, L.: Why Intranets fail (and how to fix them) : a practical guide for information professionals.
Oxford : Chandos, 2004. 200 S.
ISBN 1-84334-093-3 (hb) ; 1-84334-068-2 (pb)
Abstract: This book is a practical guide to some of the common problems associated with Intranets, and solutions to those problems. The book takes a unique end-user perspective an the role of intranets within organisations. It explores how the needs of the end-user very often conflict with the needs of the organisation, creatiog a confusion of purpose that impedes the success of intranet. It sets out clearly why intranets cannot be thought of as merely internal Internets, and require their own management strategies and approaches. The book draws an a wide range of examples and analogies from a variety of contexts to set-out in a clear and concise way the issues at the heart of failing intranets. It presents step-by-step solutions with universal application. Each issue discussed is accompanied by short practical suggestions for improved intranet design and architecture.
Inhalt: Key Features e Jargon-free and aimed at information professionals with sole/mixed responsibilities - Draws many examples from broader library management contexts - Clearly distinguishes between intranet and Internet technologies Readership Information professionals with primary/ secondary responsibility for Intranets or Intranet sites within an organisation. Library managers and directors. Contents Introduction Why users behave irrationally - user expectations; the information skills deficit (and surplus); pattern recognition and false superstitions (how the brain builds relationships between ideas; hypertext; weIl-worn paths and habitual information seeking behaviour; how intranets stifle users); expectations of failure Why organisations behave irrationally - competing perspectives; organisational expectations; organisational structure and information ownership; the information wasteland; why Intranets are not IT applications Reconciling competing expectations - defining expectations; setting realistic targets; placing Intranets within broader information strategies Elements of Intranet architecture - aspects of Intranet architecture; designing success Implementing and managing Intranets-implementing Intranets; designing success Anticipating change - information systems convergence
