Cyburbia by James Harkin
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


At the end of the first decade of the new millennium, we communicate in ways that were once unimaginable. This books shows how we got there, where we are going and what the new technology is doing to us. Once there was no text messaging. No email and no social network sites like Facebook, Bebo and MySpace. Cyburbia describes how the architecture of our digital lives was built over seventy years. This brilliant narrative shows how a concept that began with the need to shoot down German bombers has evolved to govern almost everything ? from our lives online to modern films like Memento and 21 Grams, from plays and TV series like The Wire to military strategy. 'A swift-moving history. It is a brave step in thinking about the mess we may have all got ourselves into' Nicholas Blincoe, DAILY TELEGRAPH
