The Body and the Screen
by Michelle White
Published by MIT Press, 2006

Review by Ginger Mayerson

I finally finished "The Body and The Screen" and even though it didn�t wow me, it did make me think a lot. Don't get me wrong, this is an extremely well-researched book, but if it was supposed to give me some feminist or other -ist insight into how I, or others, interact with the internet, it didn't make much of an impression. Now, I know it's a big internet and I am small, but most of what I read about in the book was not really on my radar. Internet time moves fast, this book was published in 2006, much of what Ms. White is writing about has been swamped by YouTube and...well, mainly YouTube. But any pseudo-anarchistic online video alleged collective that is owned by a corporation, like Google, really takes the whole "free" internet gloss off it, because how can it truly be free if it's owned?
