“Knjiga tematizira ideje kritičkog bibliotekarstva, specifičan oblik profesionalne kulture zasnovan na konceptu društvene odgovornosti. Propitivanjem kredibiliteta javne misije bibliotekarstva u umreženom društvu podcrtana je važnost kritičke medijske pismenosti posebice kritičkih studija Interneta. Poseban akcenat je stavljen na aspekte informacijske i komunikacijske komodifikacije, artikulaciju epistemoloških i političkih prijepora podatkovnog društva (datafied society) kao i upravljanje digitalnim zajedničkim dobrom koje u svjetlu teorije odrasta (degrowth) bibliotekarstvu nudi konstruktivni imaginarij za socijalnu reorganizaciju tehnologije. ”

David M. Berry (ed.): Life in Code and Software: Mediated Life in a Complex Computational Ecology (2012)
Filed under living book | Tags: · code, computing, life, media ecology, media literacy, software
The essays in this collection, edited by David M. Berry, Senior Lecturer in Digital Media in the Department of Political and Cultural Studies at Swansea University, explore the relationship between living, code and software. For Berry, technologies of code and software increasingly make up an important part of our urban environment – indeed, their reach stretches to even quite remote areas of the world. Life in Code and Software introduces and explores the way in which code and software are becoming the conditions of possibility for human living, crucially forming a computational ecology, made up of disparate software ecologies we inhabit. As such we need to take account of this new computational environment, Berry argues, and think about how today we live in a highly mediated, code-based world – a world where computational concepts and ideas are foundational, and within which, code and software become the paradigmatic forms of knowing and doing.

The debate over whether the Net is good or bad for us fills the airwaves and the blogosphere. But for all the heat of claim and counter-claim, the argument is essentially beside the point: it’s here; it’s everywhere. The real question is, do we direct technology, or do we let ourselves be directed by it and those who have mastered it? “Choose the former,” writes Rushkoff, “and you gain access to the control panel of civilization. Choose the latter, and it could be the last real choice you get to make.” In ten chapters, composed of ten “commands” accompanied by original illustrations from comic artist Leland Purvis, Rushkoff provides cyberenthusiasts and technophobes alike with the guidelines to navigate this new universe.
In this spirited, accessible poetics of new media, Rushkoff picks up where Marshall McLuhan left off, helping readers come to recognize programming as the new literacy of the digital age––and as a template through which to see beyond social conventions and power structures that have vexed us for centuries. This is a friendly little book with a big and actionable message.
