Review quote

"A bold and provocative look at the future of storytelling. It's about the virtues of video games, the science of cocktail parties, and the new business model of journalism. It's about a world in which the medium is mostly irrelevant, and the message is everything. Read this book if you want to get your message right." --Jonah Lehrer, author of the" New York Times" bestseller" How We Decide " "Nick Bilton has written a rollicking, upbeat guide to the digital world--a peek into our near future, where news, storytelling, and even human identity are transformed. It's a fascinating book from a man who has helped pilot the" New York Times" into a new age of online journalism. If you're wondering--or worried--about the future of media, this is your road map." --Clive Thompson, " Wired" magazine columnist and contributing editor "Bilton doesn't just live in the future, he also understands the past." I Live in the Future" explains how our communications tools shaped our present, how new tools are shaping our future, and what we should do to take advantage of all this opportunity." --Clay Shirky, author of" Cognitive Surplus" and" Here Comes Everybody " "From the Hardcover edition."
