Provocative, unconventional ideas for ensuring that the inevitable dominance of software in every corner of society will be healthy instead of harmful. Listen up! Lanier does not simply question the dominant narrative of our times, but picks it up by the neck and shakes it. A refreshing and important book that will make you see the world differently. Brian Arthur economist and author of The Nature of Technology "One of the triumphs of Lanier's intelligent and subtle book is its inspiring portrait of the kind of people that a democratic information economy would produce. His vision implies that if we are allowed to lead absorbing, properly remunerated lives, we will likewise outgrow our addiction to consumerism and technology.

Contrary to scholarly interpretations, the Middle Welsh poem Preiddeu Annwn is a poetic account of a real event, that being an attack by Welsh Normans West Texas before and after the Civil War saw an explosion of immigrants making their way through the area on their way west. The Butterfield Stage line ran from to , but the road was used by settlers, cattle drives and trade caravans long after.

Local and internet sources were used to research the history of the evolution of the building itself and trace the residents as far back as records allowed. The world of investing is fascinating and complex, and it can be very fruitful.

But unlike the banking world, where deposits are guaranteed by the federal government, stocks, bonds and other securities can lose value. There are no guarantees. That's why investing is not a spectator sport. By far In , Japan began a year period of colonial rule over Korea.

It is topical, interesting, intelligent, surprising, and important. For me, it has a real WOW factor, which I love to find. And, in the process you might also become a Jaron Lanier fan, as I have. Here it is - and we all need to understand it. I'm glad this book was recommended to me, and I have gotten several friends to read it - all truly appreciate it.

My Jaron Lanier library is growing - sure glad he is there, thinking and writing. A Must Read, even if the offered solution is flawed. The critique of the Silicon Valley culture and forma mentis is brilliant, and very much needed. It is nice to hear another version than the usual call for an "open" Internet. And it is nice to hear a few sound truths, like the Internet does NOT create more jobs, it is in fact in danger of shrinking the market.

And all this critique is beautifully written and a delight to read, interludes included. It is obvious that Lanier, on top of being a talented musician and computer scientist is also a talented and convincing writer. However, he is no economist and his knowledge of economics is very fuzzy - as explained in another comment here that you should read, A. Likewise, the fix he proposes - even in broad outline - is simply not realistic.

Not realistic because of technical problems. Even if a team of techie geniuses manage to come up with a credible system not likely , the nanopayments are likely to be so "nano" that transaction costs would eliminate any value created. Identifying people's contributions to the Net are impossible: And to what extent a new idea is in debt to an old one the "legacy" problem, assuming of course that the idea originator is not dead - or should his or her descendents inherit?

And not realistic because of social problems. The owners of "Siren Servers" Google, Apple, Amazon etc are not likely to change their business model - it's a winning model, why break it? Of course, they won't. Which means that this book will remain on an academic shelf, as far as the solution proposed is concerned.

But not as far as the critique is concerned: Shake Silicon Valley, make 'em see they're not such marvels! Highly Recommended - the book is well written, thoughtful and captures both our situation and posits potential solutions.

Specifically how the concentration of data and distribution of risk by those who own the data creates a significant risk to our capitalist based economy and over the long term to the very companies that create the situation. Thus, I find it strangley ironic to write this review for free on the Amazon bookstore Whether you agree with Jaron Lanier and his observations or not, my sense is that you will be better informed of the situation he describes by reading his book.

Hardcover Verified Purchase. When I heard Jaron Lanier speak about his book, I was interested in learning more about his take our networked information economy.

So it was good to finally finish the book and understand his view that, as things are currently progressing, what he terms "Siren Servers" such as Amazon, Google, Facebook will own the future. That is unless proposals such as his help us move to an alternative future where data ownership and costs are higher and yet there are more of us who have a piece of the action as part of a middle class that can grow and prosper.

Segments that stood out or were most memorable for me included Lanier's description of Siren Server effects, his map out and summaries of nine "dismal humors" of futurism and one hopeful one based on Ted Nelson's earlier work on "two-way links".

Of particular interest to me were his comments on how we could earn and spend as well as barriers and leadership scenarios for transitioning to more humanistic arrangements. As others have indicated, this book is dense, covers much ground, and it can be challenging for a reader to connect all the various pieces. However there are nuggets at every turn, and hanging in or returning to the text is worth it to get the insights and concerns from this tech insider.

While his alternative future may not be "the one," hopefully more will heed his cautions and consider ways to promote middle class growth as the networked information economy continues to advance.

Perhaps, like Odysseus, we will be able to overcome the dangerous aspects of the Sirens to further progress in the human journey. This is where I got hooked. Read the book!
