MP3: The Meaning of a Format by Jonathan Sterne


Jonathan Sterne’s new book MP3: The Meaning of a Format has been published by Duke. Here’s some further information about the book. Jonathan previous book on the history of sound technology was really thorough, so this is likely to be SN important intervention – particularly given the centrality of MP3 in contemporary culture. Jonathan runs a web resource about his work here, it includes a blog. I’m just ordering a copy of the book, I’ll probably post some comments on here when I read it, or I might write a lengthy review if I get chance (which I’ll link to).
