Barbrook, R. (2007). Imaginary futures: From thinking machines to the global village. Pluto Press.
Author and University of Westminster lecturer Dr. Richard Barbrook demonstrates in Imaginary Futures how politics influenced the way the Internet is controlled today and calls upon all who are cyber-connected to use the Internet for taking revolutionary politics into their own hands, to create a more positive future. Barbrook challenges new generations to take the power of the Internet into their own hands, to resist status quo politics and to use the world’s most powerful political tool to shape their own, better, destiny. His message: if we don’t want the future to be what it used to be, we must invent our own, improved and truly revolutionary future.
