Booknews
A scholarly examination of the World Wide Web as a cultural technology. More than a dozen contributors from the social sciences and humanities examine the web as a complex nexus of economic, political, social and aesthetic forces, and theorize on how the different dimensions of the web as a complex practice come together. Authors explore the presence of the corporate media system, software piracy and the writing on the web, concluding with a remark that the web is a blend of magic, metaphor, and power. Annotation c.
