The Peoples Platform Read Ý PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free From a cutting edge cultural commentator a bold and brilliant challenge to cherished notions of the Internet as the great leveler of our ageThe Internet has been hailed as an unprecedented democratizing force a place where all can be heard and everyone can participate eually But how true is this claim In a seminal dismantling of techno utopian visions The People's Platform argues that for all that we tweet and like and share the Internet in fact reflects and amplifies real world ineuities at least as. Taylor lets the air of TED Talks tires in one of several brilliant take downs of libertarian spokespeople for the tech industry Her arguments convincing Taylor critiues the way digital life is damaging the democratic underpinnings of culture without coming across as a Luddite but instead of focusing on economic and regulatory factors I would like to live in a world with the kind of internet and media culture that she describes I d been awaiting the release of this book for sometime after being dazzled by her Serfing the Web piece for The Baffler

The Peoples Platform Read Ý PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Aggregating the work of others is the surest way to attract eyeballs and ad revenue When culture is free creative work has diminishing value and advertising fuels the system The new order looks suspiciously like the old oneWe can do better Taylor insists The online world does offer a uniue opportunity but a democratic culture that supports diverse voices and work of lasting value will not spring up from technology alone If we want the Internet to truly be a people's platform we will have to make it. I thought this was a very interesting book I certainly found myself blogging about it and recording uotes while I read than I normally do For those of you unfamiliar with the text Astra Taylor used each chapter of her book to start a conversation about potential concerns about the current media landscape The work was incredibly well researchedThe aspect I appreciated the most was the way Taylor made me think about things I had not really thought about before For instance she points out the increased personalization of experience on the web leads to echo chambers Sites learn what we like and then they just give us that For obvious reasons this is not idealThis book was assigned reading for a class which was interesting because Taylor directly criticizes many of the authors we have already read In many ways I value her perspective because she is not a lawyer academic or consultant She is an actual media creator particularly documentary films outside of just writing this book Nevertheless I would be incredibly interested to read rebuttals or reactions from figures like Shirky or Lessig
