'A fascinating look at net-based art and design, and a compelling read. What makes Net Works unique, and particularly useful, is the rigor and insight with which the contributors discuss their own projects. It will quickly appear on many syllabi, including my own.' - Mark Tribe, Assistant Professor of Modern Culture and Media Studies, Brown University
'The result is a lively and successful interplat that clearly relates theoretical constructs to the actual practice-based act of creating new media projects.' - Karie Hollerbach, Professor of Mass Media Studies, Southeast Missouri State University
'Recommended. Media artist and educator burrough succeeds in creating a text to support the teaching of new media from both practical and theoretical perspectives. Although the structure of the book (short essays divided by subheadings) mirrors the typical textbook, the projects included will appeal to a wider professional audience. While new media inherently becomes outdated quickly (or, depending on one's viewpoint, new quickly), the thematic approach will be adaptable to future projects.' –CHOICE, E.K. Mix, Butler University
