Peter Cowhey (UCSD and now the Senior Counselor at USTR) and Jonathan Aronson (USC) have a new book out from MIT Press. It can be downloaded under a Creative Commons license.I was an early reader of the book in draft and was very impressed -- this is good, insightful scholarship.
Transforming Global Information and Communication Markets: The Political Economy of Innovation explains why global information and communication markets matter, why change is needed, and what should be done.
Transforming Global Information and Communication Markets (Thanks, Jonathan!)
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
