Employing a technographic methodology (Bucher, 2012) consisting of observations, interviews and artefact studies, the author strives to unravel how cultural boundaries are established, modified or erased in relation to journalistic digital artefacts.

The notion of boundaries is informed by debates in the theoretical fields STS (Gieryn, 1999; Carlson, 2015) and cultural techniques (Siegert, 2015). Combining these understandings of boundaries, allows for novel ways of exploring shifting epistemological paradigms, social stratifications and human-technological relations in journalistic work.
