Summary

"The celebration of network cultures as open, decentralized, and horizontal all too easily overshadows their political dimensions. Organized Networks sets out to destroy these myths by tracking the antagonisms that lurk within Internet governance debates, the exploitation of labor in creative industries, and the aesthetics of global finance capital. Cutting across the fields of media theory, political philosophy and cultural critique, Ned Rossiter diagnoses some of the key problematics facing network cultures today."--BOOK JACKET.
