I selected this post from Maria Popova, who never fails to produce the best content and information on her blog brainpickings It’s always thought provoking and challenging and today is no exception.
My commentary:
**The future is upon us and excelerating at a rapid pace, knowledge is power……
**These books suggested are timely and relevant and can be helpful to all of us who curate, create, consume and share content and information on the web.
**These books examine the networked society, the sharing of information and interpretation and its impact on our thinking, our minds and our future.
**How will the sharing economy impact collaboration and innovation
**How will you participate in all of this?
“From retrofuturist media prophecies to the cognitive consequences of mobile-everything”.
Here’s an intro which will tell you what you can expect from this article.
We’re deeply fascinated by the evolution of media and the sociocognitive adaptations that go along with it,
**but perhaps even more so by the intellectual debates surrounding this ever-swelling topic of increasing urgency and controversy.
The past year has been particularly prolific in varied takes on our shared digital future, contextualizing
**our current concerns in fascinating media history and exploring the potential consequences of our modern media diets.
Collected here are 7 of our favorite books investigating the subject from dramatically different yet equally important angles.
