Abstract: Based on the approach of the ‘social shaping of technology’, this paper will provide a brief discussion of a) the impact that the individuals who populate a standards body’s working group, and b) this body’s voting rules have on its final standards. It will primarily draw upon a qualitative empirical study. In particular, this paper will use the IEEE 802.11 group as a real-world sample group to further highlight the issues discussed more theoretically above.
