Radical Technologies: The Design of Everyday Life
Radical Technologies: The Design of Everyday Life4,25 4 5 Forfatter: Adam Greenfield Oplæser: Michael Butler Murray
We're told that innovations–from augmented-reality interfaces and virtual assistants to autonomous delivery drones and self-driving cars–will make life easier, more convenient, and more productive. 3D printing promises unprecedented control over the form and distribution of matter, while the blockchain stands to revolutionize everything from the recording and exchange of value to the way we organize the mundane realities of the day to day. And, all the while, fiendishly complex algorithms are operating quietly in the background, reshaping the economy, transforming the fundamental terms of our politics, and even redefining what it means to be human.
Having successfully colonized everyday life, these radical technologies are now conditioning the choices available to us in the years to come. Greenfield's timely guide clarifies the scale and nature of the crisis we now confront–and offers ways to reclaim our stake in the future.
