Zeros and Ones: Digital Women and the New Technoculture By Sadie Plant
A extremely contentious, very readable and completely up-to-the-minute investigation of girls’s pure relationship with trendy know-how, an affiliation which, Plant argues, will set off a brand new sexual revolution.
Zeros and Ones is an clever, provocative, and accessible investigation of the intersection between ladies, feminism, machines, and specifically, data know-how. Arguing that the pc is rewriting the previous conceptions of man and his world, means that the telecoms revolution can be a sexual revolution that undermines the basic assumptions essential to patriarchal tradition. Historic, up to date, and future developments in telecommunications and in IT are interwoven with the previous, current, and way forward for feminism, ladies and sexual distinction, and a wealth of connections, parallels, and affinities between machines and ladies are uncovered because of this. Difficult the perception that man was ever in charge of both his personal company, the planet, or his machines, this e book argues it’s critically undermined by the new scientific paradigms emergent from theories of chaos, complexity, and connectionism, all of which recommend that the previous distinctions between man, lady, nature, and know-how must be radically reassessed.
