Most Helpful Customer Reviews

By A Customer on 22 Mar 1998
Format: Hardcover
The label of "cyber-feminist" should not give readers the illusion of Plant's
ability to mobilize women readers.
She affirms the role of women as the pursuers of technology,
as being part of the machine.
Her words become as mysterious as the ghost in the machine
because they are only a description of where we are in these times,
and I was left without a sense of direction.
Her throws to Ada Lovelace were numbing at some point,
and I wondered if there were other women we could also look at.
Possibly specific Asian women would have been a relief to hear about
instead of her tendency to speak generally about women
in Japanese and Taiwanese business slowly taking control.
Her saving grace was her beautiful analogies of technology with textiles
and of binary language with the roles of women and men.
