Editorial Reviews

Review

• Provides a nuanced understanding of the implications of the digital revolution for information utilization

• Attempts to make sense of the changes in the production and organization of information resulting from Internet culture

• Takes the discussion to the next level in terms of the meaning and trajectory of this form of communication and its impact

• Discusses the meaning of information ownership vis-a-vis artists who are proponents of free culture, including Paul D. Miller (a.k.a. DJ Spooky that Subliminal Kid), William Burroughs, video artist Bill Viola, Negativland, Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails, and others



"This book is a clarion call for people to influence technology before it expresses a desire running 'counter to the well-being of the human.' The authors see the Internet as having the capability to help people 'embark on a course of unrealized human collective potential.' . . . Recommended."

Book Description

The gates to a flood of amateur-produced media have been opened. The Internet has become a world—and we have become a species—that shares everything. When information is shared, fact and fiction blend, and we find ourselves beyond the blogosphere: an uncharted place where it's easy to get lost among the mesmerizing, convoluted networks of information.
