Error: Glitch, Noise, and Jam in New Media Cultures

New Media on The Internet
“Error” brings together established critics and emerging voices to offer a significant contribution to the field of new media studies.

The book is divided into three sections: Hack, Game and Jam. In the first section contributors explore the ways in which errors, glitches and failure provide opportunities for critical and aesthetic intervention within new media practices. In the second section they examine how errors allow for intentional and accidental co-opting of rules and protocols toward unintended ends. The final section, «Jam,» considers the role of error as both an inherent «counterstrategy» and a mode of tactical resistance within a network society.

The book offers a brilliant collection of essays for those who are interested in new media and want to widen the scope in this field.

Ошибка: проблемы, помехи и затруднения в культуре новых медиа

Вопросы новых медиа
«Ошибка» — это книга, которая вносит значительный вклад в область исследования новых медиа, объединяя мнения авторитетных критиков и молодых специалистов.

Книга состоит из трех частей. В первой части авторы исследует способы, с помощью которых ошибки, проблемы и неудачи предоставляют возможности для критического и эстетического вмешательства в рамках практики новых медиа. Во второй части рассматриваются неожиданные последствия, к которым могут привести ошибки в случае намеренного и случайного искажения правил и протоколов. В последней части ошибка представлена в роли обязательной «контрстратегии» и как способ тактического сопротивления в пределах сетевого общества.

Таким образом, эта книга представляет собой блестящую коллекцию эссе для всех, кто интересуется новыми медиа и желает расширить свой кругозор в данной области.

"New Media: Key Concepts"

New Media on The Internet
Digital media are rapidly changing the world where we live. Global communications, mobile interfaces and Internet cultures are changing our everyday life and experiences. To understand these changes, we need a new theoretical imagination, the one that is informed by a conceptual vocabulary. And this vocabulary is able to cope with the daunting complexity of the today’s world.

The book addresses six key concepts that are pivotal for understanding the impact of new media on contemporary society and culture: information, network, interface, interactivity, archive and simulation.

The outstanding book “New Media. The Key Concepts” will help to understand and analyze the so-called “new media”. In my opinion, this book will be very useful for students, who study media, communications and cultural theory.

TSU: Surfing The Net

New Media on The Internet
Social networks swallowed modern man with head long ago. And a student isn't an exception. Our university also keeps up with the times. There are several platforms at the social networks Vkontakte, that allow to keep the track of the events of students' life. A person can dip in the thick of events without living his home.
Such publics as «Overhear at TSU», «Priznavashki TSU», «Acquaintances TSU» and «Typical fresher TSU» were created by the students in the social networks. There are many other groups and publics, but those mentioned above attracted more attention. And we would like to speak about them in details.
«Overheard at TSU». This public page is the analogue of more famous platform «Overheard». It permits to look into the life of a student deeper and find out how he or she lives. Students share everyday problems, failures or, on the contrary, tell about success, happy moments of their learning process and other pleasures of life. «Overheard at TSU» initiated other publics.
«Typical TSU Fresher» appeared after freshmen had blown the public page with their questions at the end of the summer. It is understandable, because obscurity frightens. We want to know a little more than it is written on the websites of our dear University. The administrators divided «Fresher» from «Overheard» without losing salf-control. So the problem with the bemused recruits' questions was solved.
