Abstract

This paper presents a critique of those technological mechanisms of power which permeate the contemporary networked milieu, examining how specific functions, protocols and applications configure and control social interactions and subjective experiences. Whatismore, I suggest that autonomous software and mdigital media technologies and practices have become increasingly converged, become ever more central to a new deeply embedded, highly mediated post-industrial capitalist mode of production.
