Chaos, Power and Accountability in the Information Age. From the cover: “As all of us are showered with bright promises about the new electronic frontier — one of unalloyed and revolutionary opportunities — this book offers a more sober, alternative perspective. It portrays a wired-world of economic growth without jobs or security; a realm of connections - without communication; a frontier without citizens - only consumers. In this controversial book David Brown contrasts the myths with the emerging realities of the information age. He shows how informational networking is eroding traditional centres of power — and presenting a convincing illusion of creative anarchy — white at the same time it is steadily and quietly giving rise to potentially dangerous new concentrations of commercial power which are built around hubs of silicon and code.”
