OSTERTAG, BOB: Facebooking the Anthropocene in Raja Ampat
OSTERTAG, BOB: Facebooking the Anthropocene in Raja Ampat

This is a well written, well researched and constantly fascinating book, written directly from experience and in a conversational tone that deals in depth with serious matters musical, political and technological. All three of the essays probe the way in which new media and new technologies have overturned the world of seventy years ago - in ways most of us wont even have contemplated; Bob exposes vast effects through the examination of small tributaries: DJ culture, tourism, music consumption and production, technological alienation vs technophilia, scuba-diving, pornography, video games, virtual personalities, gay culture and post-human concepts of creativity all through a combination of human stories and meticulous research. He wears his learning lightly but, as a journalist of long standing he has a fine ear for a story. And there are many stories here. The ideas are subtle and complex, the topics serious and the writing personal, often funny and always sharp. It's a book of real substance, and a pleasure to read.
