Reviews

"Finally, a 'Structural Transformation of the Public Sphere' (Habermas) for the digital age! This smart book maps the transformation of the public sphere in the age of digitalization, and is an important contribution to the sociology of media." - Scott Lash, Professor of Sociology and Director of the Centre of Cultural Studies at University of London, Goldsmiths, UK

"This book offers a critical analysis of contemporary debates around the issue of algorithms, software and code, giving rich examples to explain its impact on society and the potential ways forward for developing our understanding of these control technologies. As such the book is an important contribution to scholarly work on the digitalization of knowledge and the growing field of software studies." - Dr David M Berry, Author of The Philosophy of Software and Reader in Digital Media, University of Sussex, UK
