1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointed in 2nd edition January 14, 2013
I use The Cybercultures Reader (1st ed.) as my major course text for two university courses. I am only just now using the 2nd edition, as I've been away from these courses due to sabbatical, etc., for a wee bit.

Big Change in Direction (not all good)
I was surprised to see how significant the changes were. The goal and purpose has completely changed. In fact, too much has changed to be calling this a 2nd edition. Only 12 of the 44 articles are the same as the first edition. Call me old-fashioned, or out of the loop, but I am of the "old school" that believes an "edition" is a somewhat revised, perhaps expanded production. A significantly new work should have a new title, and be designated as such in some way. These readers should have been re-titled, the 2nd ed. perhaps called "Cybercultures Rewriter" instead of "Reader." To make matters worse, has no look-inside feature to allow customers to distinguish between the two editions. Nor does Routledge's own page make clear the huge differences between the two until you read the Table of Contents. I know Routledge is a prestigious press, but I feel that someone really dropped the ball here. As a customer, I feel deceived and manipulated by a less-than-ethical practice with this title choice. My university book store did not check the editions too closely, and ordered the 2nd edition instead of the first, as I had asked them to to - probably making the same assumption I originally did about the word "edition." Of course, it was a disaster. None of the assigned articles on my syllabus were available, and I had to spend hours re-doing lectures to match the Reader the class had bought. I'm sure my bookstore can't be the only one to have done this. Shame on you, Routledge!
