Book Title: The New Digital Age
Written by: Eric Schmidt and Jared Cohen
Chapter Title: Our future selves
A short comment from blog’s author about the first chapter
Reading the chapter title, you might expect a philosophical analysis of the human identity (or self-perception) affected by technology. However, the first chapter is nothing more than an appetizer.
What Schmidt and Cohen call “our future selves” is nothing more than a summary of recent technological achievements and, an optimistic account of the technology landscape in the next few decades.
Although it has some valuable clues inside, still it was more satisfying if the chapter had a more humble title (e.g. technology and our everyday life).
