Críticas:

‘If you want to understand the web not as some invasive, alien dimension but an extension of our own world, ‘The People’s Platform’ is an excellent place to start.’ Oliver Moody, The Times

‘We need books like this … [Taylor’s] done a lot of homework and writes well, so ‘The People's Platform’ will be an invaluable primer for anyone seeking to understand why our networked world isn't all that it is cracked up to be.’ John Naughton, Observer

‘Public discourse on the subject of technology is skewed to the margins, to the extremes … credit is due, then, to Astra Taylor, for trying to reject such simplistic divisions … She has highlighted a genuine problem facing the world – the difficulty of promoting art, culture and public- spiritedness in the internet age.’ **** Tom Chivers, Sunday Telegraph

‘There have been a lot of books about how the Internet is changing our world, but this is absolutely one of the best. Beautifully written and highly recommended.’ David Byrne

‘Sane, lucid, and generous. This book adjusted my thinking on several scores.’ Jonathan Lethem

‘This timely book lands just as the valuations of technology companies soar and cracks have begun to show in the public’s reverence for the likes of Google and Facebook … ‘The People’s Platform’ is packed with facts that give weight to this argument … Taylor’s nightmare and Zuckerberg’s dream may well come true: we’ll be living in a Facebook world.’ Hannah Kuchler, Financial Times

‘Perhaps the most important book about the digital age so far this century.’ Douglas Rushkoff

‘The scariest book I’ve read in a while is also the most exhilarating: there is no better, stronger picture of our bleak new technological landscape and the peppy delusions and deceptions of its profiteers than The People’s Platform. But knowledge is power, and Taylor gives us a picture so clear it empowers us to find a way forward through the debris. Read it and revolt.’ Rebecca Solnit

Críticas:

"The promise was so utopian, and it really seemed possible! Now we watch as the lauded instrument of "creative destruction" ends up in the hands of a few giant corporations. What happened? Is there a way out beyond pulling the plug? In response, Astra Taylor has laid out clear arguments, sobering information, and inspiring insights. There have been a lot of books about how the Internet is changing our world, but this is absolutely one of the best. Beautifully written and highly recommended." David Byrne "Astra Taylor's insights into the 'missing middle' of our present situation are sane, lucid, and generous. This book adjusted my thinking on several scores." Jonathan Lethem "In this, perhaps the most important book about the digital age so far this century, Astra Taylor reveals the unacknowledged economic system actually running the net. It's a landscape in which leisure might better be classified as labor and the promise of free culture ends up costing us so much more than money." Douglas Rushkoff "The scariest book I've read in a while is also the most exhilarating: there is no better, stronger picture of our bleak new technological landscape and the peppy delusions and deceptions of its profiteers than The People's Platform. But knowledge is power, and Taylor gives us a picture so clear it empowers us to find a way forward through the debris. Read it and revolt." Rebecca Solnit

Descripción HarperCollins Publishers, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 230 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. From a cutting-edge cultural commentator, a bold and brilliant challenge to cherished notions of the internet as the great leveler of our age. The internet has been hailed as an unprecedented democratising force, a place where everyone can participate. * So why are minorities and marginalized groups under-represented on user-generated websites, with less than 15 of Wikipedia written by women? * Why does keyword-jammed and star-studded churnalism proliferate, at the expense of in-depth, investigative journalism? * And how have a handful of giant corporations like Facebook, Google and Apple seized control of our creativity, galvanizing individuals to produce content for free? The People s Platform argues that for all our sharing , the internet reflects real-world inequalities as much as it reduces them, as attention and income frequently accrue to those who already have plenty of both. The online world does offer a unique opportunity for greater freedom, but a community that supports the diverse and lasting will not spring up from technology alone. If we want the internet to be a people s platform, we will have to make it so. Nº de ref. de la librería AA89780007525591

Descripción HarperCollins Publishers. Paperback. Estado de conservación: new. BRAND NEW, The People's Platform: Taking Back Power and Culture in the Digital Age, Astra Taylor, From a cutting-edge cultural commentator, a bold and brilliant challenge to cherished notions of the internet as the great leveler of our age. The internet has been hailed as an unprecedented democratising force, a place where everyone can participate. * So why are minorities and marginalized groups under-represented on user-generated websites, with less than 15% of Wikipedia written by women? * Why does keyword-jammed and star-studded churnalism proliferate, at the expense of in-depth, investigative journalism? * And how have a handful of giant corporations like Facebook, Google and Apple seized control of our creativity, galvanizing individuals to produce content for free? 'The People's Platform' argues that for all our 'sharing', the internet reflects real-world inequalities as much as it reduces them. Attention accrues to those who already have it. Cultural products are increasingly valued more as opportunities for data collection for distributors - content creators receive little for their efforts. News filters mean people mistake what interests them for what is really important. And we pay for our 'free' access to content by offering up our personal details to advertisers. The online world does offer a unique opportunity for greater freedom, but a democratic community that supports the diverse and lasting will not spring up from technology alone. If we want the internet to be a people's platform, we will have to make it so. Nº de ref. de la librería B9780007525591
