Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus Kitap Açıklaması
Why doesnt the explosive growth of companies such as Facebook and Uber deliver more prosperity for everyone? How could things be different?
In San Francisco in 2013 activists protesting against the gentrification of their city smashed the windows of a bus carrying Google employees to work. But these protests werent just a question of the activists versus the Googlers, or even the 99 per cent versus the 1 per cent. Rather they were symptomatic of the true conflict of our age, between humanity as a whole and a digital economy in which boundless growth is valued above all else.
In this groundbreaking book, Douglas Rushkoff - named one of the worlds ten most influential thinkers by MIT - lays out a ground plan for a different economic and social future. Ranging from big data to the rise of robots, from the gig economy to the collapse of the eurozone, Rushkoff shows how we can combine the best of human nature with the best of modern technology to achieve a state of sustainable, distributed wealth.
Its time the economy finally worked for the human beings its supposed to serve.
Douglas Rushkoff is one of todays most incisive media theorists and a provocative critic of our digital economy. Hes also fun to read
