Program or Be Programmed: Ten Commands for a Digital Age

By Douglas Rushkoff

The debate over even if the internet is sweet or undesirable for us fills the airwaves and the blogosphere. yet for all of the warmth of declare and counter-claim, the argument is basically irrelevant: It’s right here; it’s far and wide. the genuine query is, will we direct expertise, or can we permit ourselves be directed through it and those that have mastered it? “Choose the former,” writes Rushkoff, “and you achieve entry to the keep an eye on panel of civilization. select the latter, and it can be the final genuine selection you get to make.”

In ten chapters, composed of ten “commands” observed via unique illustrations from comedian artist Leland Purvis, Rushkoff offers cyber fanatics and technophobes alike with the ideas to navigate this new universe.

In this lively, obtainable poetics of recent media, Rushkoff alternatives up the place Marshall McLuhan left off, assisting readers come to acknowledge programming because the new literacy of the electronic age––and as a template wherein to work out past social conventions and tool buildings that experience vexed us for hundreds of years. it is a pleasant little e-book with a major and actionable message.
