Interface Culture Summary


Interface Culture: How New Technology Transforms the Way We Create and Communicate by Steven A. Johnson

In this hip, erudite manifesto, Steven Johnson bridges the gap that yawns between technology and the arts. . Drawing on his own expertise in the humanities and on the Web, Steven Johnson not only demonstrates how interfaces - those buttons, graphics, and words on the computer screen through which we control information - influence our daily lives, but also tracks their roots back to Victorian novels, early cinema, and even medieval urban planning. The result is a lush cultural and historical tableau in which todays interfaces take their rightful place in the lineage of artistic innovation. With a distinctively accessible style, Interface Culture brings new intellectual depth to the vital discussion of how technology has transformed society, and is sure to provoke wide debate in both literary and technological circles.
