             Subject: LIST OF INTERESTING BOOKS

    Dear Dr. Willard McCarty,

    Following are my personal findings regarding the books related to the
    Cyborgs, Postmodernism, Virtual Reality, Media, Philosophy of Information
    and Technology, Cybermedia, Internet and Cyberspace, and Digital culture,
    Science Fiction and technology, hypertext etc -during my cyberexplorations
    and thought, this might interest you. I hope these books would also be
    helping you in your teaching and learning -the books are *highly

    Actually, I tried to collect some important books on the contemporary
    issues related to Philosophy of cyberspace, AI, computers and VR, digital
    culture and technology, hypertext and writings etc, but if I have missed
    some other books on important issues related to above themes, please let
    me know! Thanks you very much in advance! --Arun Tripathi

    "I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think." -SOCRATES

    "We must find out what words are and how they function. They become images
    when written down, but images of words repeated in the mind and not of the
    image of the thing itself." --William S. Burroughs

    What information consumes is rather obvious: it consumes the attention of
    its recipients. Hence a wealth of information creates a poverty of
    attention, and a need to allocate that attention efficiently among the
    over abundance of information sources that might consume it.
    ---Nobel Laureate, Economist, Herbert A. Simon---

    Another important thoughts..Herbert Simon quote..
    It is not my aim to surprise or shock you --but the simplest way I can
    summarize is to say that, there are now machines that can think, that can
    learn, and that can create. Moreover, their ability to do these things is
    going to increase rapidly until --in a visible future-- the range of
    problems they can handle will be coextensive with the range to which
    the human mind has been applied..

    Telepresence -the remote projection of human abilities into a Machine -the
    melding of Mind and machine.

    (Excerpts from an Interview with Semiotics writer, Umberto Eco)
    Q. What does your take on Marshall McLuhan? You have written that the
    global village is an overrated metaphor, as "the real problem of an
    electronic community in solitude." Do you feel that McLuhan's philosophy
    is too lightweight to justify the cult that has been dedicated to him?

    A. McLuhan wasn't a philosopher --he was a sociologist with a flair of
    trend spotting. If he were alive today he would probably be writing books
    contradicting what he said 30 or 40 years ago. As it was, he came up with
    the global village prophecy, which has turned out to be at least partly
    true, the "end of the book" prophecy, which has turned out to be totally
    false, and a great slogan --"The medium is the message"- which works a lot
    better for television that it does for the Internet.

    "The world has arrived at an age of cheap complex devices of great
    reliability; and something is bound to come of it."
    --Vannevar Bush, 1945 (As We May Think)--

    --Some excerpts from Michael Benedikt (Ed.) "Cyberspace: First Steps" on
    Cyberspace Ideology-- "Cyberspace is a completely spatialized visualization
    of all information in global information processing systems, along
    pathways provided by present and future communications networks; enabling
    full copresence and interaction of multiple users, allowing input and
    output from and to the full human sensorium, permitting simultaneous of
    real and virtual realities, remote data collection and control through
    telepresence, and total integration and intercommunication with a full
    range of intelligent products and environments in real space."
    REVIEWs of _Cyberspace: First Steps_ can be read at

    Some of the following books, are taking the questions such as, Is
    cyberspace an inevitable development in the interaction of humans and
    computers?, What will it look like?, What are the larger narratives that
    work to shape collective perceptions of e-space?

    Describing the Internet, Luciano Floridi at Oxford, wrote:

    A whole population of several million people interacts by means of the
    global network. It is the most educated, intellectual community that ever
    appeared on earth, a global academy that, like a unique Leibnizian mind,
    thinks always. The Internet is a completely new world, about which we seem
    to know very little....its appearance has found most of us, and especially
    the intellectual community thoroughly unprepared.
    ---The Information Society, Vol 12, No.1---

    Prof. Joseph Weizenbaum auch einmal sprach, "..Fuer den, der weiss, was er
    sucht ist das Internet eine wunderbare Quelle. Fuer den, der einfach nur
    rumsurft, gilt das natuerlich nicht. Der Zugang zu viel Wissen bedeutet
    eben nicht, dass man das Wissen nuzten kann. Das Internet ist ein
    Schrotthaufen, in dem Geld und Perlen versteckt sind.." He further goes
    on saying, "..On the Web, there is no informations, only "signals" are
    present. We, human-beings should try to change the "signals" into
    "informations" --the use of "signals" is also discussed elsewhere in
    the latest book of Albert Borgmann, "_Holding On To Reality_"

    Perlen drin_ is located at

    "Before you become too entranced with gorgeous gadgets and mesmerizing
    video displays, let me remind you that information is not knowledge,
    knowledge is not wisdom, and wisdom is not foresight. Each grows out of
    the other and we need them all." ---Arthur C. Clarke---

    media scholars and philosophers contributed new essays on new media --such

    Life of the Digital Aesthetic, N. Katherine Hayles's The Condition of
    Virtuality, William Mitchell's Replace Place, George Landow's Hypertext as
    Collage-Writing, Lev Manovich's What is Digital Cinema?, etc. Details at
