About the Author

Douglas Rushkoff is an award-winning author, broadcaster, and documentarian who studies human autonomy in the digital age. He has been named one of the world's ten most influential intellectuals by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He coined such concepts as "viral media" and "social currency" and has been a leading voice for applying digital media toward social and economic justice. He is a research fellow of the Institute for the Future, and founder of the Laboratory for Digital Humanism at CUNY/Queens, where he is a professor of media theory and digital economics. He has written regular columns for Medium, CNN, Daily Beast, and the London Guardian and made the PBS Frontline documentaries "Generation Like" and "Merchants of Cool."

Reviews

Original and uplifting. Just the book America needs right now. In his unique and engaging style, Rushkoff reminds us of our human essence: we are social creatures, and if we trust this truth about ourselves we can accomplish the seemingly impossible.--Frances Moore Lappรฉ, author of Diet for a Small Planet and Daring Democracy
Rushkoff is the gold standard. He always knows what tech is up to--and he's usually prophetic. Now he's here to tell us how our Silicon masters are attempting to pit us against one another for their own gain. Go Team Human.--Walter Kirn, author of Blood Will Out and Up in the Air
A vivid thinker, Rushkoff is an insightful and acerbic antidote to Facebook, cultural hegemony, and the corporatization of everything.--Seth Godin, bestselling author of The Dip, Linchpin, and What to Do When It's Your Turn (and It's Always Your Turn)
Can the revolution start already? This book will help us. Thank God for Douglas Rushkoff.--Parker Posey
An astonishing, paradigm-shifting must-read for all inhabitants of the twenty-first century. Precisely and cogently written. Rushkoff's best work so far.--Grant Morrison
