"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.
