Who Owns The Future

£10.99

Digital systems change the way power is gained, lost, distributed and defended in human affairs. This text looks at the survival of the middle class on the surface, and about the role of ego and sentiment in personhood in its depths.

Description

As you read this, thousands of remote computers are refining secret models of who you are, using the information to make huge fortunes for a few people. Does the future have to be this way? How can we change it? In this visionary book Jaron Lanier imagines an alternative, where economic power is given back to creators. Drawing on sources ranging from ancient philosophy to the latest technology, he proposes a radical system that truly rewards endeavour – whether it’s in the media or manufacturing – and ultimately preserves human dignity.
