Qui fait quoi? Pratiques de l'informatique et résistance des métiers dans un quotidien régional.

Abstract : Who does what? Computers alter work habits and tend to deeply modify the social forms of the division of labor. The present article is based on an analysis of the everyday work habits at the French regional newspaper, Ouest-France, and shows how, despite efforts on the part of management to break down barriers between the trades, the employees built them back up again. The book-trade workers developed skills associated with the mastery of computers, demonstrating their desire to remain the sole custodians of a professional quality embodied in the culture of the book trades. They were also seeking to preserve their trades whatever the tools nedded to exercise them. The journalists, on the other hand, who associated the ideal of skill with the intellectual dimension of their occupation and not its technical dimension, refused to acquire the knowhow connected with computer use.
