Comments on the Weber commentary and Lyytinen/King response

Abstract

That being said, ENOUGH! It is time to set concerns about the logic of the connection between AL and TC aside and begin working on what both mean in the world we face today. Let’s take the remarkable brain power represented by these authors and apply it to developing new or analyzing old theories that might eventually become a “core,” and to taking the steps necessary to enhance the legitimacy of the work of IS researchers and educators in the academy. The ultimate Jamesian “cash value” of their work will come from how the field is perceived by outsiders who count rather than by the intrinsic precision of their arguments. Certainly by now the arguments are refined enough to proceed. That is, we have enough grasp to reach further.
