Now, with the web breathing down our lives, he offers this provocative critique of how digital design is shaping society, good and bad. YOU ARE NOT A GADGET discusses the technical and cultural problems that have unwittingly arisen from programming choices that were 'locked-in' at the birth of digital media and considers what a future based on current desgin philosophies will bring. With the proliferation of social networks, cloud-based data storage systems, and web 2.0 designs that elevate the 'wisdom' of mobs and computer algorithms over the intelligence and wisdom of individuals, his message has never been more....digitalistic.
