How to Fix the Future

How to Fix the Future

From data breaches to disinformation, a look at the digital revolution’s collateral damage with “practical solutions to a wide-range of tech-related woes” (TechCrunch). In this book, a Silicon Valley veteran travels around the world and interviews important decision-makers to paint a picture of how tech has changed our lives—for better and for worse—and what steps we might take, as societies and individuals, to make the future something we can once again look forward to. “A truly important book and the most significant work so far in an emerging body of literature in which technology’s smartest thinkers are raising alarm bells about the state of the Internet, and laying groundwork for how to fix it.”?Fortune “After years of giddiness about the wonders of technology, a new realization is dawning: the future is broken. Andrew Keen was among the first and most insightful to see it. The combination of the digital revolution, global hyperconnectivity, and economic dysfunction has led to a populist backlash and destruction of civil discourse. In this bracing book, Keen offers tools for righting our societies and principles to guide us in the future.”?Walter Isaacson, New York Times-bestselling author of Steve Jobs and Leonardo Da Vinci “Comparing our current situation to the Industrial Revolution, he stresses the importance of keeping humanity at the center of technology.”?Booklist “Valuable insights on preserving our humanity in a digital world.”?Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
