“By combining evocative photos and provocative texts, David Nemer presents a vivid account of the social, political and economic inequalities that help shape digital inequalities.” “Ao combinar fotos evocativas e textos instigadores, David Nemer apresenta um relato vívido das diferenças sociais, políticas e econômicas que contribuem para as diferenças digitais.”

Ivan da Costa Marques, Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro

“Descendants of blacks, indians and mestizos appropriate, swallow and digest the Western technology that would be intellectual property of the whites and their successors. In the best decolonizing Brazilian metaphor, this very useful book is an anthropophagic celebration.” “Descendentes de negros, índios e mestiços apropriam, deglutem e digerem uma tecnologia Ocidental que seria propriedade intelectual dos brancos e seus sucessores. Na melhor metáfora descolonizadora brasileira, este utilíssimo livro é uma celebração antropofágica.”
