From a cutting-edge cultural commentator, a bold and brilliant challenge to cherished notions of the Internet as the great leveler of our ageThe Internet has been hailed as an unprecedented democratizing force, a place where everyone can be heard and all can participate equally. But how true is this claim? In a seminal dismantling of techno-utopian visions, The People’s Platform argues that for all that we “tweet” and “like” and “share,” the Internet in fact reflects and amplifies real-world inequities at least as much as it ameliorates them. Online, just as off-line, attention and influence largely accrue to those who already have plenty of both.What we have seen so far, Astra Taylor says, has been not a revolution but a rearrangement. Although Silicon Valley tycoons have eclipsed Hollywood moguls, a handful of giants like Amazon, Apple, Google, and Facebook remain the gatekeepers. And the worst habits of the old media model—the pressure to seek easy celebrity, to be quick and sensational above all—have proliferated online, where “aggregating” the work of others is the surest way to attract eyeballs and ad revenue. When culture is “free,” creative work has diminishing value and advertising fuels the system. The new order looks suspiciously like the old one.We can do better, Taylor insists. The online world does offer a unique opportunity, but a democratic culture that supports diverse voices and work of lasting value will not spring up from technology alone. If we want the Internet to truly be a people’s platform, we will have to make it so.

Product Description: Thirty trenchant essays probe the dominant paradigms ruling both the work and play industries in America, illuminating how both mirror each other in their sex, violence and power depictions. We may be familiar with the shadow industry of sex tourism, but have we thought about designing sex for Space Tourism? How about x-rated interactive video games that go far beyond the most violent pornography found on the Internet? Now that we're in the Age of Drones, have we considered how our conceptualization of "love" may have been forever modified? Have we noticed that our concepts of "The Apocalypse" may now be obsolete? Why is there increasing workplace shooting-spree violence, now perpetrated by women as well as men? Disturbingly, we barely seem to have noticed that we've entered the realm of techno-sexuality where old-fashioned Biblical morals are as obsolete as button-shoes...read more
