Two groundbreaking critics and historians of technological effects on culture discuss a re-envisioning of the electronic commons. As reactionary corporate elites reshape our geo-political landscape, possibilities emerge for a radical re-accessment of people’s relationship to information technology and its use.
Finn Brunton and Ramesh Srinivasan rigorously explore the possibilities for grassroots resistance to misinformation campaigns, invasions of privacy, trolling, and offer creative approaches for the rebooting of progressive agendas and effective techniques of re-appropriating technology into the service of democratic principles.
