Making the Perfect Record: From Inscription to Impression in Early Magnetic Recording

Thread and Alienated Labor

For prior intersections of thread with standardization and alienated labor, see Babbage 334 {Au: Is this from 1961 or 1963?} and Plant (1997, 15–16) on computation and Jacquard’s loom. Of course, Marx also wrote about spinning and weaving machines, with an occasional response to Babbage. See Chapter 15, “Machinery and Modern Industry,” Capital and “Division of Labour and Mechanical Workshop. Tool and Machinery” in Collected Works, Vol. 33. {Au: Please provide the page ranges for these two chapters.}
