Cyberpop is an analysis of cyberculture and its popular cultural productions. The study begins with a Foucaultian model of cyberculture as a discursive formation, and explains how some key concepts (such as 'virtuality,' 'speed,' and 'Connectivity') operate as a conceptual architecture network linking technologies to information and individual subjects. The chapters then each focus on a particular cyberfiguration, including Hollywood films (GATTACA, The Matrix), popular literature (William Gibson's Neuromancer, Scott Westerfeld's Polymorph), advertising for digital products and services (Apple Computer's '1984/McIntosh' campaign, AT&T's 'mLife' campaign), digital artworks (including virtual females such as Motorola's 'Mya' and Elite Modeling Agency's 'Webbie Tookay,' and work by visual artist Daniel Lee for Microsoft's 'Evolution' campaign), and video games (Tomb Raider). Each close reading illustrates the ways in which representations of digital lifestyles and identities - which typically fetishize computers and celebrate a 'high tech' aesthetic encourage participation in digital capitalism and commodity cyberculture. Matrix argues that popular representations of cyberculture often function as forms of social criticism that creatively inspire audiences to 'think different' (in the words of Mac advertising) about the consequences of the digitalization of everyday life.

Disability and New Media examines how digital design is triggering disability when it could be a solution. Video and animation now play a prominent role in the World Wide Web and new types of protocols have been developed to accommodate this increasing complexity. However, as this has happened, the potential for individual users to control how the content is displayed has been diminished. Accessibility choices are often portrayed as merely technical decisions but they are highly political and betray a disturbing trend of ableist assumption that serve to exclude people with disability. It has been argued that the Internet will not be fully accessible until disability is considered a cultural identity in the same way that class, gender and sexuality are. Kent and Ellis build on this notion using more recent Web 2.0 phenomena, social networking sites, virtual worlds and file sharing. Many of the studies on disability and the web have focused on the early web, prior to the development of social networking applications such as Facebook, YouTube and Second Life. This book discusses an array of such applications that have grown within and alongside Web 2.0, and analyzes how they both prevent and embrace the inclusion of people with disability.

Racing Cyberculture explores new media art that challenges the 'race-blind' myth of cyberspace. The particular cultural workers whose productions are addressed are the performance and installation artist Guillermo Gomez-Pena and Roberto Sifuentes, the UK new media arts collective Mongrel, the conceptual artists and composer Keith Obadike, and the multimedia artist Prema Murthy. The author looks at how works by these artists bring forward questions of racial and cultural identity as they intersect with information technology.

In diesem dritten Band seiner kritischen Studien zur Internetkultur hinterfragt Geert Lovink den jüngsten »Web 2.0«-Hype um Blogs, Wikis oder Netzgemeinschaften. Anstatt den »Bürger-Journalismus« zu idealisieren, untersucht der Autor den »nihilistischen Impuls« der Blogs, etablierte Bedeutungsstrukturen auszuhöhlen und - voller Stolz auf ihren Insider-Charakter - das Verlinken, Indexieren und Ranking zum Hauptantrieb zu erheben. Darüber hinaus behandelt das Buch die stille Globalisierung des Internets, in der nicht mehr der Westen, sondern Länder wie Indien, China und Brasilien sich zu einflussreichen Akteuren entwickeln. Ein weiterer Schwerpunkt ist die Revision des Theoriebestands: Geert Lovink aktualisiert überholte Konzepte wie die der Globalen Internet-Zeit, der Taktischen Medien oder der Krise der Medienkunst und widmet sich dem schwierigen Verhältnis zwischen Architektur und Netz. Das Buch schließt mit spekulativen Bemerkungen zu Modellen wie Organisierte Netzwerke, Freie Kooperation und Verteilte Ästhetik.

Michael L. Dertouzos, langjähriger Leiter des Informatik-Instituts am MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, MA, USA), prognostizierte bereits in den 70er Jahren die Etablierung des Internet. Kurz vor der Jahrtausendwende entwirft er wieder ein realistisches Bild unserer Zukunft. Sein Buch What Will Be wurde in Amerika sofort nach Erscheinen zum Bestseller. Er beschreibt darin, wie die rasante Entwicklung der Informationstechnologie unser Leben verändern wird. Anschaulich und unterhaltsam, mit Beispielen und Anekdoten illustriert, führt er uns in eine neue Welt. Viele Bereiche des Alltags wie Kommunikation, Gesundheitswesen, Unterhaltung, Arbeitswelt und Wirtschaftsleben werden einem umfassenden Wandel unterworfen sein. Die "informationelle Revolution” hat bereits begonnen. Nach der Lektüre dieses Buches wissen Sie, wohin sie führt. "... ein ansprechender und klarsichtiger Wegweiser in die Zukunft, voller Einsichten, wie die Informationstechnologie unser Leben und unsere Welt im nächsten Jahrhundert umgestalten wird ... Wer an der heraufziehenden informationellen Revolution teilnimmt – und das sind wir eigentlich alle – muß erkennen, was auf uns zukommt." Aus dem Geleitwort von Bill Gates "... wird uns der Informationsmarkt zwingen, unsere humanistischen und technischen Sichtweisen einander anzunähern ..." Michael L. Dertouzos "What Will Be ist ein geistreicher, profunder Blick auf unser zukünftiges Leben." Esther Dyson
