"In Spring 2019, the MIT Press will launch <strong>Ideas, a hybrid print and digital open access book series intended for general readers that will provide strongly argued and provocative views of the effects of digital technology on our ideas and thus on culture, business, government, education, and our lives.
Series authors are experts in their field who are writing for a broad audience. Forthcoming books in <strong>Ideas include Hacking Life: Systematized Living and Its Discontents by Joseph M. Reagle, Jr. (April 2019); The Smart Enough City: Putting Technology in Its Place to Reclaim Our Urban Future by Ben Green (April 2019); Sharenthood by Leah Plunkett (Fall 2019); and Data Feminism by Catherine D’Ignazio and Lauren Klein (Spring 2020), which is available now for community review.
The series is edited by David Weinberger, an author and senior researcher at Harvard’s Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society, and will be published open access with financial support from the MIT Libraries...."
