Inhaltsangabe: Software has often been marginalized in accounts of digital cultures and network societies. Although software is everywhere, it is hard to say what it actually is. Cutting Code: Software and Sociality is one of the first books to treat software seriously as a full-blown cultural process, and as a subtly powerful material in contemporary communication. From deCSS to Java, from Linux to Extreme Programming, this book analyses software artworks, operating systems, commercial products, infrastructures and programming practices. It explores social forms, identities, materialities and power relations associated with software, and it asks how software provokes the re-thinking of production, consumption and distribution as entwined cultural processes. Cutting Code argues that analysis of code as a mosaic of algorithms, protocols, infrastructures, and programming conventions offers valuable insights into how contemporary social formations invent new kinds of personhood and new ways of acting.

Klappentext: " Cutting Code is a major study of code as a site for constructing, negotiating, and transforming social relations. Knowledgeable, comprehensive, and insightful, Cutting Code is an essential text for anyone interested in how software achieves agency and consequently how it organizes the behaviors of both machines and humans. As soon as I finished this book, I turned it over and began reading it a second time; its deep clarity and compelling power demanded nothing less.
