Coding Democracy by Maureen Webb; Cory Doctorow (Foreword by)
Coding Democracy: How Hackers Are Disrupting Power, Surveillance, and Authoritarianism
by Maureen Webb; Cory Doctorow (Foreword by)
 
Hackers as vital disruptors, inspiring a new wave of activism in which ordinary citizens take back democracy.

Hackers as vital disruptors, inspiring a new wave of activism in which ordinary citizens take back democracy.

Hackers have a bad reputation, as shady deployers of bots and destroyers of infrastructure. In Coding Democracy, Maureen Webb offers another view. Hackers, she argues, can be vital disruptors. Hacking is becoming a practice, an ethos, and a metaphor for a new wave of activism in which ordinary citizens are inventing new forms of distributed, decentralized democracy for a digital era. Confronted with concentrations of power, mass surveillance, and authoritarianism enabled by new technology, the hacking movement is trying to "build out" democracy into cyberspace.
