Be curious, be positive, and embrace your inner sceptic!' ➽ Do you really understand the world around you? ➽ Do you know how crowdsourcing works, what terraforming does, and what alternative currency is? ➽ Do you believe Google is great - or is there a sneaky feeling in the back of your mind that it might know way too much about you? ➽ And, by the way, just what happened to the great promises of the future, the paperless offices, the Jetsons-style commutes? Come with guide and host of Radio National's Future tense, Antony Funnell, as he unravels the mysteries of the world we've created, cuts through the mumbo jumbo, warns of the dangers and laughs at the hype. Smart, articulate and refreshingly humorous, THE FUtURE AND #RELAtED NONSENSE delivers the answers to things you should know - but were too busy or too confused to ask. If you are wondering and worrying where all this technology is heading, this book will help your understanding. Two of the major themes are ‘the value of scepticism’ and ‘misplaced trust’ ： ● “We need to question what’s dished up to us, and what’s expected of us, in an increasing digital world. It’s difficult for many of us ... to sort out whether the future we’re building ... is actually the one we want for ourselves” ● “We naively put out trust in a lot of really not-so-smart ideas: we increasingly talk of getting government out of our lives, while at the same time allowing largely unaccountable, profit-driven corporations incredible access to our private thoughts, friendships and ... our financial and business-related records. Facebook alone holds more personal data on individuals than any Western democratic government has ever come near.” A readable book giving good common-sense advice.
