"The Philosophy of Software: Code and Mediation in the Digital Age"
by David Berry.
Reviewed by Rob Myers
This book is a critical introduction to code and software that
develops an understanding of its social and philosophical
implications in the digital age. Written specifically for people
interested in the subject from a non-technical background, the book
provides a lively and interesting analysis of these new media forms.
An ambitious book where Berry turns his attention from the social
relations and ideology of software (in "Rip, Mix, Burn", 2008) to the
question of what software means in itself.
