Book News Annotation:

Economies and societies once depended upon what they added to the physical world to create or bolster a national identity or a culture. Increasingly, however, what societies create is weightless, based upon immaterial goods, services and techniques produced by technologies such as cell phones, podcasts, personal digital assistants, text and image processing and digital memory. These 16 articles and ten commentaries on individual technologies track the ways in which the technologies and the products they yield interact to change the essence of communication, analysis and criticism. Articles examine such issues as data visualization serving as a new abstraction and an element of the anti-sublime, post-literate practice, unreliable simulation, blogs as literature, virtual reality as a teaching tool, dehumanization and rhetoric, haptic interfaces, and the impact of the "undo" button.
