Data Smog: Surviving the Information Glut Revised and Updated Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Media scholar ( and Internet Enthusiast ) David Shenk examines the troubling effects of information proliferation on our bodies, our brains, our relationships, and our culture, then offers strikingly down-to-earth insights for coping with the deluge.

With a skillful mixture of personal essay, firsthand reportage, 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 stress distraction, indecision, cultural fragmentation, social vulgarity, 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.

Synopsis:

Explores the myths of the information age and offers a balanced perspective on technology's ever-changing face and its sometimes invisible effects on culture as a whole
