The internet is not the answer

This is the book I'm currently studying along with Humans Are Underrated and a restudy of Technology v Humanity which makes my top 21 recommended reading list.

On page 157 author Andrew Keen says:

"... But of course, rather than democracy and diversity all we've got from the digital revolution so far is fewer jobs, an overabundance of content, an infestation piracy, a coterie of internet monopolists, and a radical narrowing of our economic and cultural elite."

At this point of studying this book I agree with the author. My distrust of Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg and Silicon Valley venture capitalists such as Andreessen Horowitz has increased.  Their tagline "Software Is Eating the World" is something I actually hate!

For your thoughts on the status of the Internet please email ian@ianberry.biz

I'll share my final thoughts on this book (and your thoughts with permission) in a blog post soon.

Be remarkable.
Ian
