Hollnagel, E. Quasi-syntetisk kommunikation. Extracta, 4, 101-107.

This was a short version of my M.Sc. thesis from 1970, entitled 'quasi-synthetic communication'. The thesis was an investigation of the conditions under which effective human-machine communication could be established. Human-machine communication was seen as being positioned between synthetic (machine-machine) communication and genuine (human-human) communication.
