Digital is Destroying Everything
Digital is Destroying Everything (Book Sample)
By Andrew Edwards
Every year, perhaps even every week, there is some new gadget, device, service, or other digital offering intended to make our lives easier, better, more fun, or more instantaneous–making it that much harder to question how anything digital can be bad for us. Digital has created some wonderful things and we can hardly imagine life without them. But digital—the most relentless social and economic juggernaut humanity has unleashed in centuries—is also destroying much we had taken for granted. And what is your place in this brave new world?
“Andrew Edwards never takes anything at face value and forces one to re-see, re-view and re-think basic assumptions about all things Digital. Digital Is Destroying Everything offers an important, historical perspective, crucial for understanding where Digital is taking us next.”
—Jim Sterne, founder, eMetrics Summit; co-founder, Digital Analytics Association
