THE INTERNET OF US Knowing More and Understanding Less in the Age of Big Data

by | Read by Dan Woren

Contemporary Culture • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Dan Woren's clear, straightforward narration warms what is otherwise a dry academic series of discussions that consider the impact of the Internet on humans' ability to think and reason. Are people turning into passive entities who know little and care less beyond the instantaneous search for facts? Is our ability to reason and truly understand being negatively impacted? What is the difference between intelligent discussion of differing opinions and blatant online marketing based upon our digitally established online profile? While Woren assumes the persona of an old media anchorman, his enlivening style does provide some humanity that the words themselves lack. Precise enunciation and diction aid this philosophical examination of issues that plague our digital lives today. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2017]
