  • The Seductive Computer

    The Seductive Computer Cover

    Derek Partridge

    IT systems often go over budget, overrun production deadlines and then fail to work properly. This book argues that the fundamental nature of programming technology itself is the real culprit; it promises perfection but can only deliver emergent chaos.  
  • The Virtual Future

    The Virtual Future Cover

    William Sims Bainbridge

    As communication technologies profoundly alter our lives, many spend more time in virtual than physical reality. This book deploys social science theory to analyze ‘virtual futures’ as imagined by the inhabitants of online gameworlds such as Entropia Universe.
