You Are Not a Gadget

You Are Not a Gadget - Jaron Lanier This book is a powerful criticism of the negative aspects of the Web 2.0 movement. Lanier does a good job of explaining the reductionism that occurs when our individuality is forced into frameworks like Facebook to be mined in the digital cloud. Cloud computing, AI, the Singularity, and the effects of technology on economics and education are also discussed. It closes by exploring the idea of what a new digital humanism might look like and how humans might use technology that emphasizes their humanity.
