Lost in Cyburbia
How Life on the Net Has Created A Life of Its OwnBook - 2009
Following groundbreaking books like The Long Tail and No Logo, Harkin's Lost in Cyburbia coins a new phrase for the zeitgeist. Welcome to Cyburbia: In this innovative and extremely timely book, James Harkin guides us through the architecture of our digital lives as it was built over the last seventy years. Lost in Cyburbia provides an essential understanding of what lies behind the rise and fall of cyber trends and explores the culture of online diaries, amateur broadcasters, and the huge calling-card emporia of social networking sites such as MySpace and Facebook. Harkin is the first to offer a systematic explanation of how the online community works and why we continue to go back there for more.
