The Philosophy of Software: Code and Mediation in the Digital Age" by David Berry. Review by Rob Myers.

This book is a critical introduction to code and software that develops an understanding of its social and philosophical implications in the digital age. Written specifically for people interested in the subject from a non-technical background, the book provides a lively and interesting analysis of these new media forms. An ambitious book where Berry turns his attention from the social relations and ideology of software (in "Rip, Mix, Burn", 2008) to the question of what software means in itself.
