Gadget Consciousness : Collective Thought, Will and Action in the Age of Social Media, Paperback / softback Book

Gadget Consciousness : Collective Thought, Will and Action in the Age of Social Media Paperback / softback

Part of the Digital Barricades series

Description

What impact does our relentless fixation on gadgets have on the struggle for new kinds of solidarity, political articulation and intelligence?

In this groundbreaking study, Joss Hands explores the new political and social forces that are emerging in the age of social media. Gadget Consciousness examines the transformation of our consciousness as a historical political force in two senses: as individual consciousness - in terms of sentience and will - and also as class consciousness.

Exploring a range of manifestations in the digital commons, he investigates what forms digital solidarity can take, and asks whether we can learn from the communisms of the past and how might solidarity be manifested in the future?Today, the ubiquity of networked gadgets offers exciting new opportunities for social and political change, but also significant dangers of alienation and stupefaction.
