Though the book never attempts to sustain a single argument across its pages, it makes an excellent introduction to some of the most current debates within and about internet culture. Though appointed as a professor at the University of Amsterdam and widely read in academic circles, Lovink has long functioned as a public intellectual.
In the s, he participated in Adilkino, also known as the Foundation for the Advancement of Illegal Knowledge, an influential group of media theorists; later, he became an editor of the media art magazine Mediamatic and a cofounder of the Dutch community network Digital City. More recently, he has convened a slew of gatherings, online and off, and led discussions on the future of digital art, new media technologies, and collaborative labor.
Each addresses a single area of debate, such as the social impact of blogging, tactics for media activism online, or the complex politics of online cooperation. In his essay on alternative media tactics, for [End Page ] instance, he offers a brief but very useful history of online social movements devoted to media activism. He then analyzes contemporary debates about those movements, first in his own voice and then, increasingly, by incorporating long passages of commentary first posted online by a range of other writers.
In another sense, though, it evolves : the essay itself becomes a cocktail party into which Lovink has invited his reader.
