There may be no word more emblematic of our information age than keyword itself, but the ubiquity of the term belies its complexity. Distinct concepts of the keyword were articulated in information theory and in cultural studies beginning in the late 1950s. By the 1990s, however, these differing concepts had become bound together. This development reflects a larger process by which computers became key mediators of culture during this period as well as the importance of cultural studies to our understanding of computers today.
