Acaba de sair na Revista Galáxia n. 28/2014, uma resenha do meu livro, “A Comunicação das Coisas. Teoria Ator-Rede e Cibercultura”. A resenha é de Thiago Machado Balbi e chama-se “Para politizar o mundo das coisas”. O texto completo em PDF pode ser acessado aqui.
Na próxima semana participo de dois eventos muito interessantes sobre cultura digital.
Dia 03/12 falo na ABCIBER, em São Paulo, e no dia 06/12 no Campus Festival, em João Pessoa. Cruzando o Brasil para as diversas facetas da cibercultura.
Fui gentilmente convidado pelo meu colega Vinícius Andrade Pereira, Presidente da ABCIBER e pelo Will Fonseca, produtor executivo do Campus Festival. Vou falar de internet, redes sociais federadas, objetos, teoria ator-rede.
As duas programações parecem bem interessantes, cada uma com a sua particularidade. Os programas dos eventos estão disponíveis nos seus respectivos sites: ABCIBER e Campus Festival
