Reinventing the Future

A round-up of some discussions around Inventing the Future. First off, Bookforum has a small selection from the book, discussing a shorter working week and the need to end the work ethic. And Uberty has a curated collection of recommended readings around the book. Meanwhile, Owen Jones has named it as his book of the year in the New Statesman.

For substantial engagements with the book, The Disorder of Things blog has a 6-piece symposium up online. The arguments of Inventing the Future were discussed in the UK House of Commons as part of the New Economics series. Further discussions about technology are up at Deterritorial Investigations Unit, on folk politics and the Black Panther Party at Synthetic Zero, and on synthetic freedom at Morbid Symptoms and at Poetix.
