Freedom and Information free pdf The powerful political call for `open access' to information has become a formative aspect of our societies and culture. As an expression of cultural freedom, digital technology creates a tension between access to information on the one hand and control and power strategies that seek to restrict access and centralize datasets on the other.a This book considers the evolution of information systems as centering upon control, open access, and knowledge, tracing the development of these notions from the Nineteenth Century.a Author Sara de Freitas provides a kind of cultural history that reworks not only how we think about information per se but also how we reconsider the human in relation to it - demonstrating the ways in which information and its pervasive influence upon cultural forms is writ large upon our social and physical spaces, our human processing, our data systems, and our everyday life.a The cross-disciplinary approach used in this book will appeal to researchers and PhD students in a wide variety of disciplines, interested in information as a guiding force in the changes in our spaces, both digital and cultural.
