McCullough's 'Ambient Commons' reviewed in The New Yorker

Ambient Commons, a book written by Professor of Architecture, Malcolm McCullough, was reviewed in the October 28 issue of The New Yorker as one of three books featured in an essay on information environmentalism (see pages 33-37). Subsequently, McCullough was interviewed by Salon.com in an article titled, "Smartphones are killing us — and destroying public life."

Ambient Commons is about attention to surroundings as the built world gets augmented with ever more pervasive information media. The book has also been featured in the ten leader stories of Utne Reader (August) and reviewed in London Times Higher Education (May).
