In the competing traditions of Marshall McLuhan and Langdon Winner, authors Aaron Barlow and Robert Leston take readers on a revealing tour of the Internet "after" the explosion of the blogosphere and social media. In the world "Beyond the Blogosphere," information has surpassed its limits, the distinction between public and private selves has collapsed, information is more untrustworthy than it ever was before, and technology has exhibited a growth and a "desire" that may soon exceed human control. As Langdon Winner pointed out long ago, tools have politics. In an eye-opening journey that navigates the nuances of the cultural impact the internet is having on daily life, Barlow and Leston examine the culture of participation in order to urge others to reconsider the view that the Internet is merely a platform or a set of tools that humans use to suit their own desires. Provocative and engaging, "Beyond the Blogosphere" stands as a challenge on how to rethink the Internet so that it doesn't "out-think" us.
