Although the algorithm has emerged as an important concept in the public mind (Sandvig, 2014; Striphas, 2015), it seems reasonable that scholars of algorithmic culture (a term coined by Galloway, 2006) might study the consequences of the addition of computing to these media and information systems without needing to know the specifics of process involved in a low-level component in a computer system.
