Buch “Generation Facebook”: Crowdfunding für englische Open Access Version

Das Buch Generation Facebook: Über das Leben im Social Net will “eine medien- und kulturkritische Perspektive auf das Phänomen Facebook” entwickeln. Linus hatte das bereits rezensiert. Jetzt soll das Buch auch auf englisch herausgegeben werden – gedruckt und als kostenloses PDF. Dafür gibt es eine Crowdfunding-Aktion auf Indiegogo:

Facebook’s success poses a lot of controversial questions – economically, socially, politically – which are far from answered yet. This book provides insights into these questions at an as yet unprecedented level of theoretical depth. Which is why it deserves to become available to an international audience.

The book has also proven to be an invaluable resource for a critical theoretical grounding of discussions about Facebook. Given the enormous user base of Facebook, it is vital to spread this kind of knowledge as widely as possible. Putting the texts under an Open Access license and making them freely accessible for everyone is the best way to achieve this goal.

flattr this!

Don't be the product, buy the product!
