Cyberselfish Review

Although Paulina Borsook has been writing about cyberculture for over a decade, most academics first discovered her via “The Memories of a Token: An Aging Berkeley Feminist Examines Wired,” Borsook’s chapter in the 1996 anthology Wired Women: Gender and New Realities in Cyberspace. Since then, Borsook has published a number of influential pieces in Salon and Mother Jones and, in 2001, published Cyberselfish: A Critical Romp through the Terribly Libertarian Culture of High Tech. Aimée Morrison, a doctoral candidate in English at the University of Alberta who is working on a dissertation exploring the personal computer in 1980s literary and popular culture, reviews Cyberselfish, followed by a rejoinder from the author.

Interesting discussion.
