"Gary Genosko has written a book that is conceptually dense and exceptionally timely. 'When Technocultures Collide' deals with the most up-to-date subjects concerning technology, communication, and politics. Whoever wants to talk about these subjects must read it." -- Franco Bifo Berardi, author of 'After the Future' (2011) and 'The Uprising' (2012) "Gary Genosko remediates the technoculture of the '80s and '90s from below. In the process he takes the reader on a wild ride through hacking, phreaking, and other modes of political resistance to 21st-century digital hegemony, sometimes following a theoretical map drawn up by the likes of Felix Guattari and Bifo Berardi and other times going off-road to blaze his own autonomous trail." -- Richard Grusin, director, Center for 21st Century Studies, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee; author of 'Remediation: Understanding New Media' (with Jay David Bolter, 1999) and 'Premediation: Affect and Mediality after 9/11' (2010) "Gary Genosko's new book is again a demonstration of his theoretical flair. From big toes to global media politics, whistling to WikiLeaks, his interventions into the technocultural condition are enjoyable to read and insightful to think-along. Genosko knows how to write transversal theory, and how to weave together media studies with politics." -- Jussi Parikka, Winchester School of Art; author of 'Insect Media' (2010) and 'What Is Media Archaeology?' (2012)
