The launch event of my new book Networks Without a Cause happened on Wednesday March 28 2012 at my school where the Institute of Network Cultures is based (HvA). My former student, photographer and blog expert Anne Helmond held a great speech, which you can read here. We also put it on the INC website. Next month the German translation will come, again with transcript Verlag who also did Zero Comments. I will go to Berlin on May 24/25 for the launch. The German edition, translated again by Andreas Kallfelz, is called Das Halbwegs Soziale, eine Kritik der Vernetzungskultur (arguably an even better title than the original English one). The Halfway Social, I love the ambivalence in that term. Then, on June 13/14 I will be in Torino and Milano for the launch of the Italian edition (to be published by Egea as Ossessione Collettive) for which Vito Campanelli wrote a great introduction.
