Product description

A groundbreaking book on our culture and the digital world by one of the legendary visionaries of the computer age. In the 1980s, Jaron Lanier was among the first to recognize the potential of the Internet as a transformative venue for creative expression, education, and communication. Now, as he considers an online culture filled with disposable film clips, blogs, and puerile discourse, he describes how the web has failed to live up to its early promise.

"Lanier's bold and brilliant protest against cyberhype and exploitation is a tonic and necessary call for humanism." -- starred, "Booklist"
