On Virality

Tony D. Sampson’s new book Virality is a good read: on network culture, Gabriel Tarde, affect, HCI and politics. I interviewed Tony for the Theory, Culture & Society blog and he elaborated some of his thinking behind the book in relation to Evil Media and non-cognitive capitalism.

The TCS blog has also – for a limited time though – the PDF of the forthcoming TCS review of Sampson’s book.

Tony Sampson’s Virality was published by University of Minnesota Press (2012).We are planning a contagion and archaeology seminar at Kings College London on March 20 that will also act as a joint book launch for the two publications (including my What is Media Archaeology?)
