John Tinnell will speak about and sign his new book, Actionable Media: Digital Communication Beyond the Desktop, on Wednesday, June 13th at 7:30pm.
About the Book:
Since the 1990’s, computers have become integrated into the fabric of everyday life. The resulting rise of ubiquitous computing (smartphones, smartglasses, smart cities) have since colonized our digital landscape. Actionable Media develops a theoretical framework for understanding wearable interfaces, augmented reality and more in terms of their intellectual history, their relationship to earlier communication technologies, and their potential to become platforms for public culture and critical media production.
