In the International Journal of Communication, MEDLab director Nathan Schneider co-edited a special issue with Andreas Hepp and Anne Schmitz of the University of Bremen. The issue revisits the landmark mid-1990s essay "The Californian Ideology" by Richard Barbrook and Andy Cameron, a critique of the political economy then emerging in Silicon Valley, which has since spread across the world. The issue includes new research that reconsiders the concept of the Californian ideology in light of global experience since, as well as a retrospective interview with Richard Barbrook.
