BLACKWELL PUBLISHERS Blog Theory
25 reviews

Blog Theory offers a critical theory of contemporary media. Furthering her account of communicative capitalism, Jodi Dean explores the ways new media practices like blogging and texting capture their users in intensive networks of enjoyment, production, and surveillance. Her wide-ranging and theoretically rich analysis extends from her personal experiences as a blogger, through media histories, to newly emerging social network platforms and applications. Set against the background of the economic crisis wrought aby neoliberalism, the book engages with recent work in contemporary media theory as well as with thinkers such as Giorgio Agamben, Jean Baudrillard, Guy Debord, Jacques Lacan, and Slavoj?i?ek. Through these engagements, Dean defends the provocative thesis that reflexivity in complex networks is best understood via the psychoanalytic notion of the drives. She contends, moreover, that reading networks in terms of the drives enables us to grasp their real, human dimension, that is, the feelings and affects that embed us in the system. In remarkably clear and lucid prose, Dean links seemingly trivial and transitory updates from the new mass culture of the internet to more fundamental changes in subjectivity and politics. Everyday communicative exchangesNfrom blog posts to text messagesNhave widespread effects, effects that not only undermine capacities for democracy but also entrap us in circuits of domination.

Blog - Jacek Bocheński, Agora
25 reviews

Jacek Bocheński, pisarz, publicysta, opozycjonista, działacz licznych instytucji kulturalnych. Rocznik 1926. Kilka lat temu powiedział sobie: "Masz klawiaturę, ekran w komputerze. Jest świat naokoło. Zapisuj, co tobie i światu się zdarzy. Pisz Blog. Zobaczymy, jak ci pójdzie." Po czym odkrywa, iż w pisaniu blogu nie chodzi o literaturę, lecz o życie. Bloger nie tyle pisze, ile "potwierdza swoje ego: ja jestem". Jak zatem "jest" Jacek Bocheński? On sam twierdzi, iż zwyczajnie. Ale cóż to za zwyczajność, w której przeplatają się pijackie scenki spod osiedlowego marketu, ze wspomnieniami o Konstantym Ildefonsie - Gałczyńskim kopiącym własną sztuczną szczękę, z przejmującymi przemyśleniami o wykorzystywaniu tortur, z anegdotami z przyjęć i sylwestrów, reminiscencjami wojennymi, cierpkimi komentarzami na temat bieżących wydarzeń politycznych i pewną dozą ironicznych komentarzy na temat Warszawskiej Spółdzielni Mieszkaniowej Służew nad Dolinką i jej mieszkańców. I jeszcze kobiety, którym autor kupuje ciasteczka, ostrzegając lojalnie, iż spotkanie opisze na blogu. Pasjonująca lektura dla ludzi ciekawych... Wszelkiego. "Blog jako książka? TAK! Publicystyka, anegdoty, wspomnienia, przepowiednie - takie, które już się zaczęły sprawdzać, i takie, co jeszcze nie zdążyły. A także niemało o miłości do pań i do świata. O Justynie, Annie, Julii, o Oburzonym i petuniach. Jacek Bocheński pisze przemądrze, ale nie przemądrzale, i jego głębokie refleksje pojmuje choćby prosty magister sztuki (ja). Proszę czytać powoli! Bo szkoda tej książki na jeden wieczór" - Jacek Fedorowicz

The MIT Press Ai Weiwei's Blog
25 reviews

In 2006, even though he could barely type, China's most famous artist started blogging. For more than three years, Ai Weiwei turned out a steady stream of scathing social commentary, criticism of government policy, thoughts on art and architecture, and autobiographical writings. He wrote about the Sichuan earthquake (and posted a list of the schoolchildren who died because of the government's "tofu-dregs engineering"), reminisced about Andy Warhol and the East Village art scene, described the irony of being investigated for "fraud" by the Ministry of Public Security, made a modest proposal for tax collection. Then, on June 1, 2009, Chinese authorities shut down the blog. This book offers a collection of Ai's notorious online writings translated into English--the most complete, public documentation of the original Chinese blog available in any language.The New York Times called Ai "a figure of Warholian celebrity." He is a leading figure on the international art scene, a regular in museums and biennials, but in China he is a manifold and controversial presence: artist, architect, curator, social critic, justice-seeker. He was a consultant on the design of the famous "Bird's Nest" stadium but called for an Olympic boycott; he received a Chinese Contemporary Art "lifetime achievement award" in 2008 but was beaten aby the police in connection with his "citizen investigation" of earthquake casualties in 2009. Ai Weiwei's Blog documents Ai's passion, his genius, his hubris, his righteous anger, and his vision for China.
