About the book:

This text aims to provide a platform for writers, scholars and activists to discuss the political, economic and cultural aspects of corporate and government visions of "the information superhighway". Addressing the video, computer and networked communications technologies on work, education, health, entertainment, literature and art, this book investigates their problematic impact on society. Exploring the relations of power and dependence fostered by the new information culture, it promotes the possibilities and strategies of resistance to the rewiring of the body psyche. With essays on the future of the Internet, the bringing down to earth of cyberspace, the sexism of the electronic frontier and the dangers of information, this work provides a critique of the "over-hyped" virtual life.
