Abstract:

Annotation

Case studies of groups including high-tech office workers, Star trek fans, Japanese technoporn producers, teenage hackers, AIDS activists, rap groups, and rock stars yield insights about the production and management of repressive technocultures, as well as new possibilities for the encouragement of technoliteracy, a requirement for the democratization of social communication.
