I started reading the book “You are not a gadget” by Jaron Lanier. This book was published 8 years ago and it still feels fresh. This read is making me reflect a lot about the Internet today. It’s the first time I read a Jaron Lanier book and I am fascinated by his ideas.
So, I am just going to leave this amazing TED Talk here for the weekend. It is worth it!
My favorite quote is this:
I don’t believe our species can survive unless we fix this. We cannot have a society in which, if two people wish to communicate, the only way that can happen is if it’s financed by a third person who wishes to manipulate them. — Jaron Lanier
