From the Doors of Perception newsletter (monthly, concise, good links whether you attend the conferences or not) I found Network Logic: Who Governs in an Interconnected World, which is a new anthology of essays about network campaigning, smart mobs (Rheingold’s here in a very condensed version), women’s networks, power laws (condensed Buchanan) and even an afterword by Castells. Only some of the essays are specifically about the internet – network is used in a much broader sense here.

Network Logic is released with some rights reserved, so you can copy, distribute, translate etc so long as the licence is included. I might use some of these essays for this autumn’s course on network culture and contagious media – the brief overviews could be good as starting points for discussion, and we can find more from there.

Do people flock to talks about ChatGPT because they are scared?

Whenever I give talks about ChatGPT and LLMs, whether to ninth graders, businesses or journalists, I meet people who are hungry for information, who really want to understand this new technology. I’ve interpreted this as interest and a need to understand – but yesterday, Eirik Solheim said that every time […]
