Comment List (Total:3)

  •     One of Goggin's masterpiece
  •     Technology in book is a little dated but I think the principles the author wrote about are solid and apply even more today.
  •     Goggin's approach on the cell phone mobile culture gives one a wide view on the matter. The book has a really complete history review, with many interesting anecdotes. It also includes an anthropological review of how this new technology piece affects our everyday lives, transforms basic habits and even developing a dependency syndrome.I found this book very interesting in many different levels and think it succeeds in giving an approach on a subject really new and unspoken so far.
