Moving Data: The iPhone and the Future of Media

by Pelle Snickars Patrick Vonderau

Small farmers are often viewed as engaging in wasteful practices that wreak ecological havoc. Exploring Agrodiversity sets the record straight: Small farmers are in fact ingenious and inventive and engage in a diverse range of land-management strategies, many of them resourcefully geared toward conserving resources, especially soil. Using case studies from Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Pacific, this book provides in-depth analysis of agricultural diversity and explores its history.

Myten om internet

by Robert Levine Pelle Snickars Mariam Kirollos Paul Frigyes Lisa Ehlin Anders R. Olsson Helienne Lindvall Per Strömbäck Anders Rydell

Vilken funktion hade egentligen sociala medier under den arabiska våren? Vilka är den digiala underklassen? Och hur har en handfull teknikföretag i Silicon Valley lyckats sprida ryktet om sig själva som det fria ordet och kunskapens främsta förespråkare När internet ska diskuteras används ofta begrepp som frihet, demokrati och delaktighet. Att internet har haft en otrolig betydelse tvivlar ingen på, men samtidigt finns en mängd löst grundade föreställningar att internet kommer infria alla förhoppningar, en sorts tekno-utopi. Internet är på ett plan öppet och fritt, men lika mycket är det skapat av offentliga regleringar, teknik och affärsintressen. 85 procent av de så kallade stadsnäten ägs av kommunala bolag. Den grundläggande infrastrukturen för nätet i Sverige är alltså i allmän ägo, tvärtemot den gängse bilden att internet drivs av marknadskrafterna. I Myten om internet har såväl svenska som internationella namn samlats för att nyansera bilden av internet, och inte minst blottlägga vilka som har gynnats av de rådande föreställningarna. Bland skribenterna märks egyptiska Mariam Kirollos, aktivist och doktorand, som starkt ifrågasätter hyllningarna av sociala mediers roll i den arabiska våren, och Robert Levine, amerikansk författare och journalist, som utkom med den mycket uppmärksammade boken Free Ride 2011.

"Little did I know that I was getting involved with WikiLeaks at the time of the biggest leaks in human history." -- Birgitta JónsdóttirWithin a relatively short period of time, WikiLeaks became the best-known whistle-blowing organization in the world. Due in large part to the release of massive quantities of classified data on the occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq, the notoriety of its founder, Julian Assange, and the trial and imprisonment of Chelsea Manning, WikiLeaks has been the subject of widespread attention and debate.In this collection, influential and innovative scholars from a wide variety of research backgrounds speculate about why and how WikiLeaks does (or does not) matter. These of essays demonstrate that WikiLeaks and their activities are relevant to more areas of academic study than have been addressed to date. Also, in a rare interview, editor Christian Christensen asks Birgitta Jonsdittir about her astonishing activity with WikiLeaks and the important role she played in the making of the Collateral Murder video.The authors are rigorous in their arguments, but also offer opinions and even speculation about WikiLeaks in relation to a range of areas of study. Readers of the essays in WikiLeaks. From Popular Culture to Political Economy will appreciate that the contributors have managed to be concrete and precise in their thinking, but also provocative and sharp in their argumentation.
