Media in Transition 9: Mediating Audiences
Audiences now include readers and viewers (of exhibits, websites, film, television), players and users (of software and libraries) and people as busy conversing, writing, and photographing as they are listening or viewing and reading. Produced, regulated, contested, surveilled, disaggregated, and of course, studied, audiences remain central to our understanding of media and culture.

Twenty-first century architecture began tragically with the fall of the Twin Towers and staggered through a real estate boom and bust. Along the way the world's tallest building was constructed in Dubai and green architecture went mainstream. Critic Blair Kamin takes note of it all and in our free e-book for September, Terror and Wonder: Architecture in a Tumultuous Age conveys the sublime and the substandard, the spectacular and the mere spectacle.

"The resistance of the wood varies depending on the place where we drive in the nail: wood is not isotropic. Nor am I; I have my 'exquisite points.' The map of these points is known to me alone, and it is according to them that I make my way, avoiding or seeking this or that, depending on externally enigmatic counsel; I should like this map of moral acupuncture to be distributed preventively to my new acquaintances (who, moreover, could also utilize it to make me suffer more)." --Roland Barthes, "A Lover's Discourse"

Wayne C. Booth was a prominent literary critic, and one of our favorite authors. All his adult life he was also a cellist. Our free e-book for August, For the Love of It: Amateuring and Its Rivals is the story of one intimate struggle between a man and his cello, as well as a journey through the larger struggle between a society obsessed with success and individuals who choose challenging hobbies that yield no payoff beyond the love of it.

“To know that one does not write for the other, to know that these things I am going to write will never cause me to be loved by the one I love (the other), to know that writing compensates for nothing, sublimates nothing, that it is precisely there where you are not--this is the beginning of writing.” —Roland Barthes, from A Lover’s Discourse: Fragments (Hill and Wang, 1979)
