This paper reports on an attempt to create a new research tool, to follow the dynamics of science and technology. `Socio-Technical Analysis' develops new quantitative indicators and graphic representations with which to map the development of a scientific controversy, or a technical innovation. The aim of the paper is to describe this approach, to stimulate reflexion and criticism, and to launch what can only be a collective project.
