Description

Paulina Borsook, a well-known and controversial figure in the high-tech world, believes that society is dangerously enthralled and intimidated by techno-crats and their pronouncements on everything from economics to politics to culture. In Cyberselfish, her irreverent and eagerly awaited exposé, Borsook skewers a digital culture that knows little about history, political science, art, or literature--or how to interact with other human beings. She reveals the hypocrisy of those who scorn big government but rely on its funding for research and its courts to protect profits. And she bemoans the lack of philanthropy from this wealthy segment of the population. Taking on the likes of George Gilder, John Perry Barlowe, and even Wired magazine, Borsook's provocative critique is already one of the most talked-about books of the year.
