About this title


As all of us are showered with bright promises about the new electronic frontier - one of unalloyed and revolutionary opportunities - this book offers a more sober, alternative perspective. It portrays a 'wired' world of economic growth without jobs or security; a realm of 'connections' without communication; a frontier without citizens - only consumers.
In this controversial book David Brown contrasts the myths with the emerging realities of the information age. He shows how informational networking is eroding traditional centres of power - and presenting a convincing illusion of creative anarchy - while at the same time it is steadily and quietly giving rise to potentially dangerous new concentrations of commercial power which are built around hubs of silicon and code. He spotlights the personalities behind this so-called 'revolution', and identifies their key role in a technocentric and global overlay culture that is increasingly unaccountable to the fragmented democratic constituencies they are leaving behind.
