Why feeln be a computer scientist for the consequences of their developments is not responsible? Political regulations exist not as good as – and to keep up with this frantic development of informative step, is hardly possible.

Dr. Arno Rolf, Professor of information systems in organisations and society at the University of Hamburg, and Arno Sagawe, u. a. research associate in the Department of computer science at the University of Hamburg, want to give this book the look at the big picture, and show, inter alia, using the example of Amazon and Google, how the companies “operate in the network, their global spiders weaving nets, branches of the ‘old’ Economy to the loot and our lives and our culture will change”. Rolf and Sagawe reports on the increasing interdependence of the real world with the “Web” as the history of the progressive Economization under the guiding principles of the Homo Economicus, to make orientation in digital worlds and provide a model framework for an architecture of the digital society.
