    1. An important collection that reflects on the transition of labor into the Internet Age, particularly with Web 2.0. Has a range of case studies and theorizing that makes it a versatile book for a range of projects. Focuses on issues on attention economy, "free labor," networks, distributed labor, playbor, and a range of other issues.


    2. Tiziana Terranova: "that social networking platforms should be deprivatized ownership of users' data should be returned to their rightful owners as the freedom to access and modify the protocols and diagrams that structure their participation."


    3. The idea driving this collection of articles is importnat and intriguing: The web economy relies on an extraordinary amount of free or underpaid labor--intellectual work we do because it feels like fun. "Play-bor".But the book itself is painful to read--almost a parody of academic theorizing and handwringing. If this is the new labor resistance, then capital has nothing to worry about.


    4. This is the first book to tackle the social divide with breadth and without all the internet optimism (which of course I buy into because I'm posting here, right?). A necessary and important collection of essays.


    5. I reviewed this book for the International Journal of Gender, Science, and Technology. You can find my review here: genderandset.open/index.
