In his new book ‘Information Politics on the Web’ Richard Rogers says that the Web can be a collision space for official and unofficial accounts of reality and, as such, an excellent arena for ‘unsettling the official’. Tools developed by Rogers, such as the celebrated issue tracker, can be used in a new information politics involving competition between the official, the non-governmental, and the underground. For Jodi Dean, Rogersâ€™ book is ‘light-years ahead of other research’, and Bruno Latour celebrates the fact that ‘Finally, someone investigates the Web’s ability to express, renew, and disrupt the age-old tools of political expression’. Rogers is Director of govcom.org in Amsterdam.
