We're filling up the world with technology and devices, but we've lost sight of an important question: What is this stuff for? What value does it add to our lives? So asks author John Thackara in his new book, In the Bubble: Designing for a Complex World. These are tough questions for the pushers of technology to answer. Our economic system is centered on technology, so it would be no small matter if "tech" ceased to be an end-in-itself in our daily lives. Technology is not going to go away, but the time to discuss the end it will serve is before we deploy it, not after. We need to ask what purpose will be served by the broadband communications, smart materials, wearable computing, and connected appliances that we're unleashing upon the world. We need to ask what impact all this stuff will have on our daily lives. Who will look after it, and how?In the Bubble is about a world based less on stuff and more on people. Thackara describes a transformation that is taking place now -- not in a remote science fiction future; it's not about, as he puts it, "the schlock of the new" but about radical innovation already emerging in daily life. We are regaining respect for what people can do that technology can't. In the Bubble describes services designed to help people carry out daily activities in new ways. Many of these services involve technology -- ranging from body implants to wide-bodied jets. But objects and systems play a supporting role in a people-centered world. The design focus is on services, not things. And new principles -- above all, lightness -- inform the way these services are designed and used. At the heart of In the Bubble is a belief, informed by a wealth of real-world examples, that ethics and responsibility can inform design decisions without impeding social and technical innovation.

Suelette Dreyfus and her co-author, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, tell the extraordinary true story of the computer underground, and the bizarre lives and crimes of an elite ring of international hackers who took on the establishment. Spanning three continents and a decade of high level infiltration, they created chaos amongst some of the world’s biggest and most powerful organisations, including NASA and the US military. Brilliant and obsessed, many of them found themselves addicted to hacking and phreaking. Some descended into drugs and madness, others ended up in jail. As riveting as the finest detective novel and meticulously researched, Underground follows the hackers through their crimes, their betrayals, the hunt, raids and investigations. It is a gripping tale of the digital underground.

De productie, de distributie, en de waarneming van bewegende beelden zijn onderhevig aan een radicale transformatie. Doordat steeds snellere computers en digitale technologie kracht bundelen, ontstaat er een nieuwe vorm van 'audiovisie'. Bijna niets zal hetzelfde blijven. De ooit 'normale' media voor het uitdragen van film - de bioscoop en de televisie - blijken niet meer te zijn dan een intermezzo in de geschiedenis van de audiovisuele media. Dit boek interpreteert de veranderingen niet als cultureel verlies maar als een uitdaging: de nieuwe 'audiovisie' moet anders benaderd worden om strategische interventie mogelijk te maken. 'Audiovisions' ondersteunt deze benadering op historische wijze. Door te kijken naar 100 jaar, van het eind van de negentiende tot aan het eind van de 20ste eeuw, laat het zien waarom de bioscoop en televisie als eindige, culturele vormen gezien moeten worden. Tevens is het boek een pleidooi voor ' blijvend kracht' van studies naar culturele technologie en de technologische cultuur van film. Essayistisch in stijl, is het boek gestructureerd rond verschillende historische fasen. De beelden en bij de tekst zorgen voor supplementaire informatie, contrast, en aanvullend commentaar.
