Hailed by the New York Times as "An Indispensable guide to the big picture of technology's cultural Impact", Data Smog is the most compelling and thorough rebuttal to date of the overhyping of the Information Age.
With a skillful mixture of personal essay, firsthand re-portage, and sharp analysis, Shenk illustrates the central paradox of our time -- as our world gets more complex, our responses to it become increasingly simplistic. He draws convincing links between data smog and social fragmentation, declining educational standards, political fractiousness, religious fundamentalism, and more.
But there's hope for a saner, more meaningful future, as Shenk offers a wealth of novel prescriptions -- both personal and societal -- for dispelling data smog.
