THIRY-CHERQUES, Hermano Roberto. An interpretation of the impact of intranet on the way of living at work. Ci. Inf. [online]. 2009, vol.38, n.2, pp. 110-125. ISSN 0100-1965. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-19652009000200009.
In the last decade, the systems of communication known as Intranet have been established as a standard in most organizations. Even the smaller government companies and agencies make use of these systems. Programs for building Intranets can be easily found and purchased at a reasonable price. In this text, analytical tools of structuralist semiology were used for interpreting the effects of intranet on the worker and his life at work. Evidently, intranet is presented as inclusive, wide, free and participative, enclosing a segregative structure, the determinant elements of which are acquiescence, subordination, narrowing of perspectives and reclusion of worker in an intellectual and emotionally restricted world.
