[Nettime-nl] Boek: Digital Activism Decoded


In een nieuw boek wordt uit de doeken gedaan of en hoe activisme op
internet werkt (of eigenlijk breder; digitaal activisme, met inbegrip
van zaken als mobiele telefoons en dergelijke).

De uitgevers beweren de eersten te zijn die dit op een rijtje zetten.
Meer informatie is te vinden op de website:
http://meta-activism.org/book/

En het boek is gratis te downloaden als pdf:
http://meta-activism.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/Digital-Activism-Decoded-OFFICIAL.pdf

Mocht iemand zich geroepen voelen om er een recensie over te schrijven,
dan zou ik die met plezier publiceren op de website globalinfo.nl

About the Book

Citizens around the world are using digital technologies to push for
social and political change. Yet, while stories have been published,
discussed, extolled, and derided, the underlying mechanics of digital
activism are little understood. This new field, its dynamics, practices,
misconceptions, and possible futures are presented together for the
first time in/ Digital Activism Decoded/.
