"Digital Transitions explores the relationship between technological changes and the social, political, economic, and cultural contexts in which these changes occur. Digital technologies have moved into every corner of life and the classic separation between work and non-work has become obsolete. The digital economy has become indistinguishable from life in the digital age. This is a book about the merger of economy and life, about life in digital capitalism.

It explores four moments of digital transitions:

  • The first chapter explores transitions of sharing, both as a

concept or an ideology and as a social practice.

  • The second chapter

explores a transition in the political economy of media and communication and its recent turn to the work of Marx.

  • The third chapter focuses on the

building of the digital commons and its very particular economy of contribution.

  • The final chapter turns the light on academic cultures and

inspects the activist turn in academia.
