Digital Delirium

Now that Deep Blue has erased the postmodern mind with digital chaotics. Your groovy techno-job is not far behind - this is the book you'll need to sit on as you're begging for some spare change from some floating Laptop - mumbling the Kroker mantra:

"Speed economy, but slow jobs. Speed images, but slow eyes. Speed finance, but slow morality. Speed sex, but slow desire. Speed globalization, but slow localization. Speed media, but slow communication. Speed talk, but no thought."
-Karen Eliot, ThingReviewsNYC

Digital Delirium writes the new horizon of electronic culture. The latest addition to the CultureTexts Series, Digital Delirium brings together some of the best minds involved in rethinking technoculture in the 90s.

30 Cyber-Days in San Francisco
Digital Delirium writes the streets of San Francisco as a way of talking about the ambiguous legacy of wired culture.

Digital Futures
Digital Delirium interviews R.U. Sirius, Paul Virilio, Jean Baudrillard, and Slavoj Zizek, and includes a state of the digital union address by Bruce Sterling.

Net Politics
The 90s began with a blast of techno-utopianism, but it will end with slow suicide in the surplus streets. Net Politics is the story of the 90s as a radically split reality: surplus class and virtual class, surplus flesh and virtual flesh, separate and digitally unequal.

The Global Algorithm
What is gained and what is lost by being digital? What do we see when we look in the digital mirror: Future-Fallout or Net-Utopia? Digital ears and diamond eyes or real blood and guts?
