It’s our pleasure to announce Robert Gehl’s new book titled “Reverse Engineering Social Media Software, Culture, and Political Economy in New Media Capitalism” (Amazon link). This book is a welcome contribution from a friend and colleague of this community to the growing critical perspectives that question the artifice of digital communication technologies, practices and social structure. Robert’s is a unique perspective in that he posits alternatives to our increasingly digitally-platformed social life. It’s a great read. Temple University Press has been kind enough to release the introduction for your reading here. Thank you to Robert and to all of our colleagues who enrich our thinking with their contributions. If any of our readers/contributors have publications that you’d like us to showcase here on Culture Digitally, please get in touch.
