The Cultural Logic of Computation: Authority and the Digital

Its advocates claim that digital media is something very new and different from what has come before--even claiming that "the digital" will transform human society utterly, decisively resolving our existing social problems. This book argues, to the contrary, that computers and computation have long been part of administrative and imperial regimes, and that their pronounced emphasis in our society bespeaks a change that is cultural as much as, perhaps even more than, it is technological. Driven by a programmer's knowledge of computers as well as a deep engagement with contemporary cultural studies and poststructuralist theory, this book provides a needed corrective to the current uncritical enthusiasm for new media.
