An interesting issue of First Monday just published, its theme devoted to the study of limits - mostly, but not exclusively, software limits.

Papers include an exploration of "how various forms of civilizational collapse would affect the software development process," the psychological limits of computing, and Cacophony, software that addresses "the difficulties inherent in collecting, fusing, and reasoning with data from a heterogeneous set of distributed sensors."
