Uncoding the Digital : Technology, Subjectivity and Action in the Control Society Hardback
by David Savat
Digital media are having an enormous impact on the world.
From the seemingly mundane, like playing World of Warcraft, to posting a message on Twitter or Facebook, to the operation of financial markets, to transformations in science and the economy - digital media continue to revolutionize how people live their daily life.
This book challenges how we understand our relationship with our digital machines, and shows how they open up a new capacity for action in the world.
A capacity for action that we should no longer simply think of in terms of movement and force, but also in terms of flow and viscosity.
A capacity for action that produces a politics of fluids, and finds its expression not only in new forms of social control, but also in a renewed ability for people to engage with the world and each other.
